Should there be any gap between dust cover and inner cv housing? It clicks in but doesn't seem in all the way? How do I get it to seat right? There is a ton of threads about removal, can't seem to find my problem on a install thread...

I believe the dust cover moves.. It's on there tight but it's not part of the coupling.. When I put my axles in the dust cover wasn't flush with the housing, I took my mini mallet and tapped on the cover all the way around and it moved in until flush.
So you could give that a try

Ya I put the cover on flush against housing but with axle in it doesn't touch diff ? So I thought it's not seated, now I pulled the shaft out of the cv how the heck do I get that in without seeing it line up?

You can chunk that stupid dust cover. Just traps crud anyway. Had one of my gorillas pop out of the cv during installation and just kept fiddling with it until it luckily went back in. If not you may have to slide the boot down.

Or you can do ??! I like that idea better anyway. But just pick the axle up and get it as straight as you can and fiddle with it until it goes in.. It'll go back ??

Yep. Iv'e replaced three boots in the rear so far and I always have to tap the cover back up to the diff. Hopefully with the Ricochets I won't be replacing boots as often.
