It thought it was supposed to be offset but when I pulled the old axles out and they were equal it made me scratch my head. I talked to Ten, which are the axles I am installing and they confirmed what you are all saying. Oh well I guess cutting into the one axle was a blessing in disguise. now I have alloy axles that are the right length and will keep the the one I didnt screw up for a spare. Thanks again for your help.
