first off ill quickly say yes im aware of the search button and have looked but im in a bit of a hurry and it's a bit complicated what im looking for i think:s..

bought GU 4.6 ratio front and rear diff centre's for the mav which have the 3.9 gear's that are standard as far as i know of! pulled the rear out today and swapped the centre over, all bolt up fine but the axle's wont slide in! so i pulled the centre back out and sat on some timber and retried to slide the axle in whilst out of the housing and still a fail, as far as i can tell with the vernier's it seem's to look like the axle is a couple of mm larger:s i have another patrol diff with the 4.1 gears and the axle slide's in fine so im thinking different splined axle's are needed? the only thing i don't understand is why the centre still bolt's into the housing fine? neither does the rear axle slide into the front centre either(which i was expecting)..

any help or tips greatly appreciated;) cheer's Ben.
