9 inch splines trac-lock alignment

I cannot slide in the driver side left axle splines into carrier?

It looks like the splines are shifted on the drivers side of trac-lock I can see a break in splines and feel the jump with finger.

Is this broken? or is there a way to align splines due to clutches?

I had a similar situation on a GM posi, but I don't know if the solution would apply to yours. I had to remove the preload springs, then stick the axles all the way in to align the splines, then reinstall the preload springs while the splines were aligned.

If the assembly is in the the housing with one axle engaged, you should be able to hold the pinion and rotate the other axle with a prybar while pressing it into the housing thereby aligning the clutch. I have done it a few times but now I make sure the axle will go in before final assembly of the diff.
