The axle need to pass both the cone and the spider on each side before it seats. You need to spin the axle to align the splines.

The axles are different lengths from side to side but not from E series to E series (ABS or not) I would think. As I said you need to turn the axle in the housing against the force of the LSD while pushing it in.

Might need to put some bearing caps on the center if you havent already. Yes stick in reverse and rotate the axle while pushing in.

Well if it is not going then perhaps one of the following:

The spider gear or cone is broken.
The spider gear or cone is the wrong spline.
The axle is wrong.

where would i find the gear cone got any pics

and it is a ABS axel but it it was in the diff it must go back in

does that mean the center could be stuffed if it dosnt go back in or could be somthing i have don while changing the crown wheels, is it a easy fix if throw it in the bin fix

yep as Above, looks to me like the LSD cone isn't alligned with the spider gear.

'forcefully tap rotate' the axle a bit and push it in

No worries, did you check backlash and preloads?
