I've finally received the last missing parts and I'm putting things back together.

Now I'm a little paranoid. I pushed the left side axle back into the hub, and it rotates fine when the whole assembly is straight, but when I turn it to an angle, the CV/axle has a very hard time rotating - is it something that will work itself out with a little use, or did I separate the joint, as mentioned above, and not put it back together properly, and now it's stuck?

How do I put a separated joint back together if that's the case?
