Default Realigning spider gears

How do I realign the spider gears in an 8.5 in. gm 10 bolt posi. I inadvertantly rolled the differential when taking out the c clips to replace the axles and the spider gears rolled down, not out though. I had hoped when I put the new axles in I could roll it the other way and they'd go back:shock: NOT. Any positive info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Durf

If they did not rotate all the way out, they should roll back into place. I believe this rear end has cupped washers between the spider gear and the housing. One or both of these washers may be the binding problem.
Good Luck, Dave
