Axle nut not threading onto remanufactured CV axle

Got my CV axle swapped out, seals replaced, and everything else torqued back down to spec and now the axle nut wonít thread onto the axle. I have the nut from the previous axle that I was trying, but I read in a few places that they should be replaced every time they are removed. So I went down to the Toyota dealership and bought a brand new one with the same results. Iíve even tried lightly filing the threads to open them up a bit, but the nut just gets super tight almost immediately. Wanted to get some input before I pull out the hacksaw and start with some fresh threads. Thanks guys.

Does the nut from the old axle thread on ok if it does just use that one if it is not damaged. The new axle should have come with a new nut, I have used the old one many times with no problems. Some reman axles use different thread patterns from stock.

It doesnít thread on at all, will barely start and then gets super tight. That one will still thread on the old cv axle like butter. The remanufactured axle did not come with an axle nut. Iím kinda stuck on what to do here.

Wish I could. Bought them on eBay, but I did send them a concerned message, so weíll see how that goes. The axle seems fine, I just need a dang nut that will work for this. Was just wondering if others might have had a similar issue and found an alternate nut that can work with this.

Someone probably hit the end of your new axle with a sledge when they were removing it from their vehicle and mashed the outer threads a little bit before they sent it in to be re-manufactured. Try holding the old axle threads next to the new axle threads and see if the thread pitch is the same. You may have to run a M28X1.5 die down it to rebuild the outer threads.

They seem to be about the same pitch, but it doesnít feel like it when Iím wrenching it down. Even tried using a tiny file to open up the treads a bit more, but it didnít seem to help. Iím contemplating cutting a couple threads worth of metal from the shaft to get a fresh set of threads. Just worried that it still might not work and then Iíd be stuck with the axle because I cut it and canít return it.

That really sucks. Who is the re builder? Sounds like they didn't check the threads. There's not many threads to be cut off between the end of the axle and the cotter pin hole. I'd order a die and fix the threads or return the axles.

Iím in the Bay Area and theyíre in Arizona. I bought it on eBay from Desert Toyota of Tucson. This is my daily driver, so now I gotta take everything apart again and put the old one back in so I can get to work and stuff. Just sucks having to waste all of this time because of one nut.

They should warranty the axle and cover the shipping back. The nut should go on smoothly. I wouldn't try to make that work. It's their responsibility to give you a quality product.

You're in my area and I get a discount at Stevens Creek Toyota. I could maybe meet you at the dealership parts department and you could use my discount to buy an axle from them.

Hey Tim, yeah I could meet you there at the parts center. Iím just a few miles away from there. I see the part listed on their website for $316.09, but donít they charge more when you go into the parts center and buy it rather than ordering online and then picking it up? I saw the knuckle oil seal online from their website for like $50 and when I called in to check if they had the part, they said they did, but it was like over $100. Anyways, yeah lemme know when to meet you there and Iíll make it over.

Send me an email and let's exchange numbers. If you give me the part numbers you need and I'll call them to get my price on them.

Here's my email: mtbtim@sbcglobal.net
