i have a strut compressor the struts and axel are new i dont know how to resize the pictures from my phone to put on here i think it is the cv axel .when i first did the struts i left old axels on. worked fine so i did the idiot thing and threw the old ones out. the new ones where same length and size slid right in. but i can not get the control arm for the rotor back into the strut..
