DSS Axle CV joint bound up

Installing a new set up DSS 1400 axles today and found that the outside CV joint is bound up. Any idea how to get it to release?

I'll ask DSS too, but they won't be able to respond until tomorrow.

Hi Frank, somehow the labels on the axles were backward and I was trying to install the long axle on the short side of the diff (I should have pulled them out of the box at the same time to visually ID the short side axle). While trying to wedge it in I must have tilted the outside CV joint too much and it bound up. I was able to get to release with some gentle twisting and tilting, seems to be OK, hopefully I didn't bust anything.
