Question Axle problem

Ok, I have brand new axles.. the problem is I can spin the tires and the drive shaft spins fine, but when I spin the shaft the tires don't move...I do have a pin in the shaft soo idk whats going on..Taken it apart a few times I don't see anything wrong with it.

take it apart one more time..this time, just take off one side of the axle housing..leave the axles, and gears on the pinion side of the housing..spin the pinion (you can leave the driveline on for this) Now try and spin the axles...should be pretty clear what is binding..if that still doesn't work, take out the axles..now spin the pinion...still bound?? take out the spider gear housing and just spin the pinion.

probably have done this already, but might take just one more time..

hope it fixes it...

are you talking about the pin to make it posi?? that might be binding.

X2,,half casing it will let you look inside while you spin the shaft,,,but now the way i read it,,you can spin the shaft but the tires dont turn,,,if thats the case,,make sure you have the differential/ring gear on the right side,,facing the right way,,either way open the case to turn the axles
