    You're going to have problems putting that in. I would get on the phone with whoever you ordered them from and make them send you a new one. Or see if a machine shop can clean them up and then send the bill to whoever sent you the axle. Looks like it got dropped or crushed after manufacturing.

    The other rear shaft backing plate was bent to crap so the 4 bolts wouldnít line up. So Iím 2 for 4.

    The front shafts were fine.

    The one on the right and middle are basically flush with the groove. Iím not sure a file would get the job done.

    A thin metal cutting blade or the edge of a thin file should open it up enough to work it smooth.... that blows the flanges were bent too... these guys need to pack shit better. What brand are they?

    I donít think it was the flange, unless I donít know what a flange is.

    Carbon off-road.

    Iím just going to call on Tuesday before I start screwing with it. The hardest part of the project was getting through all the rust, so when I get good parts it should be smooth sailing.

    Sorry... I meant backing plate... Mine was Carbon too... I emailed photos of the damage, they told me to file it out... Their packaging sucks.
