Anyone with experience with doing rear axle seal replacement and installing shaft I could use some info as to reinstall of shaft .how hard should shaft go back into axle I don't want to force it and not sure if it's just the bearing race causing difficulty of shaft going in properly please help.

I can't say I have had any issues pushing the axles back in on a 9 1/4, once it is lined up in the side gear it should push in. The seal may hold it out some, but some extra pushing and it will go in.
