So I re did the whole installation and the axle has about an 1/8 of an inch of play in and out of the differential. I don't know why this is happening? Does anybody have an idea? Could it be because the cv axle I bought is not a genuine toyota part?
I have about an 1/8 gap from the end of the shaft to the diff housing. But no leakage at all and I didn't reuse any parts from the old OEM set. I would suggest taking a close up picture of the gap and post it.
