Default SC10 Help Me (See photo!)

I need some help..
I just got an SC10 and put the RPM rods in the rear. I did that part correctly, but when I went to put it back together, it ended up being longer than it was before and now I can't put it back together?
I didn't know what I was doing at first so I ended up taking the whole rear arm (both of them) apart. I have it all back together now, though, except that (see picture) is too long for me to finish putting it back together ??

Please help. Thanks.

No, that's not the problem.. You see the thicker gray rod? That's what the problem must be.. For me to fit it to the right size, the end (where the wheel connects) is at like a 45 degree angle, which obviously I can't drive with it at.
I just took some more pictures... I'll upload them in a min.

Those must be the wrong CVDs- look too long.

They were connected when I bought the truck.. All I did was switch to RPM rods.. The rest is the same. I'm just completely puzzled.. There's got to be a simple solution here, without changing anything else.. I mean they worked before, and I didn't alter that part of it?

Man, it still looks like you need to just thread them on more, I could be wrong, but from those pic the cvd isn't close to the outdrive....

To me it looks like u just need to tighten up your ball cups more so it shortens it up. So just tighten up the turnbuckles more.

In the 3rd picture, you see where I have that set at? There is 2 holes there. If I put it into the back one, it fits. HOWEVER, I don't know if it's okay to put in into the back placement? I can't tell if that's supposed to be there for that purpose or if it's there for something else..

Looking at the second pic, just line the cvd in the outdrive, put the hinge pin in, and look at the camber you have. If it's off then you just need to tighten(or loosen) the turnbuckles

put the hinge pin in the hub/arm
set the truck on a table to check alignment and take a pic
It looks ok to us, finish putting it together and screw the rods till it's right.

My guess is AE rod ends are much longer then RPM's. You probably threaded the RPM's all the way to the spot the AE rod ends were. This would cause your link to be very short adding to much camber hence kicking out the bottom of you hub to far. Back them of (make longer) and you will be fine.

I finally got it to fit and there is no movement whatsoever.. It's as stiff as a board..
I really don't know what I'm doing wrong here.. in over my head.

Ah, just as I had suspected, I am an idiot.

Look at photo 2 - look where I had my CVDs.. Yeah, that's not where they go.

Sorry for wasting your time if you contributed to this thread!
And appreciate all the help
