1999 AWD Chevy Astro van- 130,000 miles. I just replaced both cv shafts with new units. The swap out seemed to go well, but I noticed the new shafts seemed to be about 1/2" shorter than the originals. After a successful test drive and an 100 hundred miles the cv shaft on the passenger side came out of the inner differential. I thought I had set everything in place. What am I missing? I reinstalled the shaft and tapped it in until it appeared to be up against the seal, but now I am concerned it will happen again. Auto store confirmed that this was the correct shart for the vehicle. Suggestions welcome.
