Front end reinstall issue ... Help please!

Hello,

So I tore apart the front end and replaced everything including all the bushings, the front bearings, seals etc but now when I go to put everything back on I can't get the hub assembly to hook up to the upper control arms ... It's like the original axles have grown about a half inch in length. I don't get it. *The only thing I can think of is that I pulled the axle out a bit too much and now it's not going back in. *The thing is it's doing the same thing on both sides.
I don't suppose anyone has any ideas??

Cheers,
Mike

I measured about 7.35" from center to center, or about 187 mm, on a front shock arm from a 63 Sprite.
Your shock arms probably have not been modified, but there might be some offset bushings somewhere.
