Darksould V2 Rear Axle Extenders

Soooooo,

I bought some V2 extenders (fronts went on smooth, for the most part )

Threw on some stuff working front to back, and then went to but the rear extenders on; My problem is...

They didnt fit. If i try to to put them on the right way, they dont fit, but if i put the threaded portion first, it slides on no issue. The original SS wheel hex slides on no issue, and the threaded first slides on no issue. If i try to put them on (either, on either side) the proper way, they dont even get past the very tip.

I thought about lube, but its not that its a tight fit, it just doesnt fit at all. Most of the stuff i found was the old V1 or after they had the retrofit kit, or just general questions and no one had this issue.

Am i doing it wrong? I would assume you would just slip it over, slap the pin through and install as the original hex would. So the question is,

Are they just a manufacturer defect? i find it hard to believe both would not fit. I tried both on both sides and neither slid on, even with force.

Advice?

Yeah, that would definitely help, some pictures.

Cant believe in this age where cameras are dime a dozen and uploading is not that difficult to figure out.

This site is very hard to post pictures on unless you use a third party site which I'm not a big fan of.

Kind of forgot about this post, i intended to post pictures but none of mine were "allowed" because they were to big. Ill get some pictures soon, going to give them a go here today or tomorrow since my brother has a 5th coming in so we have some pre-run maintenance to do we will take a second look at the extenders.

Also, @Crank, i know how to upload, i know cameras are everywhere and i understand pictures help. I used my phone, i posted this on my PC. I forgot to transfer them at the time, i figured i described it well enough to give people an idea of my problem anyhow

IME the axle hub can deform around the pin hole from the torque applied to the wheels. I had to grind them down a little to get the DS extenders on. No problems after that. I suspect the DS extenders are made with tighter clearance against the axle hub than the stock parts but I might be wrong.
