I just got the outer axle bearing cones pressed onto the rear axles for the Timken assembly and I've noticed something that could be a problem. When I put the outer bearing cup into the axle housing on the driver's side it is a snug fit and will need to be tapped in, which is what I expected, but on the passengers side the bearing cup slides right into the housing without any resistance.
Is this correct and normal? If not is there some kind of sleeve I can add to the axle housing to tighten up the fit for the bearing cup? Would appreciate any help or advice.
