Ok I am very new to working on vehicles. But super mechanically inclined though bc work history and I can not get the spline back in after taking it out to put on my air struts any suggestions? I fill like I have put it at every angle is there a certain length my strut can't exceed any suggestions would be awesome!!! I know at one point I couldn't get the part that goes under the axle that is attached by three bolts bc it was to short or I felt like I was binding it up to much. So lengthed the strut once already.

A couple of people suggest putting grease on the spline before attempting to reinsert it. This video talks about the ring on the end of the spline that helps hold it in the transmission. They use a rubber mallet to get the axle into the transmission, and the keeper in place.
