Got it in the hub but it looks like it's got 3mm of so of seperation betwixt the axle and the tranny, dunno what to do about it,

I've tried jiggling it, I've tried wailing on it, but 2.5 hours of different things hasn't helped.

Anyone?

Finally got the damn axle figured out, it was the seal, replaced in and everything reassembled but for two studs with slight dings. You have to remove the knuckle and wheel hub and get a new wheel bearing to do it right, so I'll use a die (since the damage is minimal), but eveywhere is closed, so big time, life sucks, might try and file on it and get it on the road tonight, otherwise I'll just wire all night, but gee, I'm learning a whole new meaning of pwnage.

Dinged studs - you mean wheel studs? Collateral damage of the axle banging process?

Well, got it filed up and ready to go, but now my front suspension sits about 6" too high and feels like it's solid and not sprung, , I dunno wtf to do about that, or what could be causing it either.

Thank you, I do suck, mehbe I'll kill myself when I have fixed the car.

The wheel studs are fine now, the problem is the suspension.

Did you notice if the dust covers went over the shock body, jared? I think that might be the issue.

That's very weird. Is the transmission in the same place as before the swap? The first thing I thought about is maybe the axles are holding up the suspension. (Like they're somehow too long.) Pure useless conjecture though.

The axles are the same for the different transmissions, and the tranny is in the same place.

Right now I'm thinking the dust cover boots are too narrow and are resting on the top of the shock body. The covers are from my EF shocks and the shocks are from an EG, which means that the shock body is wider.
