So I was swapping my coilovers and decide to try and peak at the rack and pinion and I noticed my axle just didn’t look right. I had just recently swapped it and honestly can’t remember if it’s supposed to look like that. My passenger wheel (same side as the axle) has been sitting an inch outward (pictures included). So after I noticed the axle it kinda clicked that maybe it could be the axle causing the wheel to sit about an inch outward? I’ve had a pretty bad shake since I bought the car and have since for the most part eliminated it but it still persists on right turns. So I was thinking that maybe the culprit of the bad fitment and shake could be the axle? Sorry if that was hard to read, I’m exhausted atm.

Hard to tell in the picture I can’t see in between the axel and transmission if its seated or not, but the axel being out like that will not cause the wheel to stick out make sure your axel nut is torque all the way down.

I was more meaning to ask if that gap between the axle and trans is supposed to be there or if the axle is supposed to sit flush against that face

definitely there is supposed to be no gap there you’ll have to push it in all the way or else you’ll start leaking fluid in between.

Had to take soft mallet hammer and extension and tap on boot lightly to make it go in before.
I appreciate it, while messing with it yesterday one my friends made the case that maybe since my wheel is pushed out about an inch, that maybe when we tighten down the axle nut it is pulling it back out of place? If anybody has any feedback on if that’s a possible cause that would be greatly appreciated

If the axel is seated right in the transmission when you tighten the axel nut it should not pop out. Unless your car has adjustable control arms or adjustable ball joints could be the culprit of your wheel sticking far out? If you put things back in order it should look the way it was before.

Yea everything suspension wise is oem (minus coilovers) and the wheel has been sticking out since I bought the car. We just haven’t been able to figure out why. But since that wouldn’t effect the axle seating properly I’ll go give it another shot at getting it seat. Thanks for the advice 🙏

If you can separate the axel from the hub again its much easier to pop that axel back in by holding the shaft with both hands kinda give it a pull back and jam that sucker in you’ll feel it sit in place.

Yea we ended up pretty much having to just shove it in there and give it a ton of really hard pushes to get to it fully seat. I’ll post before and after pics for anybody else with the same question
