    I just hit it with a file and it definetly went in further, it got stuck actually maybe a 1/4in deeper?? but still did not go in all the way. I'm gonna keep going and hit every spline again and see if it's any easier.

    I almost think you could simply bolt a box end of a wrench over a lug stud to help you easily gain some leverage to lift the end easier

    Slowly filing the end seems to be making progress incredibly slowly

    Cheers!! and now I go to install my new drums and there is a huge chunk out of them, I should have inspected them more thoroughly ffs. Gonna try to reuse my old drums by soaking them in brake clean, heating them, and soaking them some more.

    sometimes these things are really annoying lol

    I'm telling you, it's because it wasn't lubed up. It's a bitch to get them in if you don't lather them in diff juice.

    Definitely factored in, filing and lubing was the trick

    The OP was just unlucky. Usually it's a none issue.

    Like everything in life, lube is the key. You can do it!

    Everything is almost done, went and bought new drums gonna get the broken pair refunded. Spidertrax spacers are on to eliminate the frame rub from the 33s. Now we just need to bleed the brakes and bed them in and all will be done for now.

    Make sure your parking brakes is adjusted and functional. Replacing axle seals is how I ended learning how to make our rear drum brakes work properly. It wasn't as straight forward as I thought.

    I had a hard time getting mine back in until I tried twisting them as I smacked them with my dead blow. That did the trick. Glad you got it sorted out.
