I am putting on a tein flex suspension on my new si hatchback and I let the hub assembly on the front passenger side drop and it pulled the axle out, I am not quite sure how to put it back without taking the axle apart. If somebody else has had this problem or knows how to fix it please let me know

that is what happened to the driver side, it was no problem slid right back in, but the passenger side will not go in, it never dissengaged from the tranny, when I spin the hub the other tire spins as well. Am I doing something wrong?

if your having trouble, put a little bit of grease or oil on the clip that is on the end of the axle that slides into the trans. Get a SMALL ballpene hammer and LIGHTLY tap the axle into place if you can't get it in by hand. It will go in, be patient.
I think he's saying the CV joint came apart in the boot. If you can't work it back in you'll probably have to remove the boot to get it back together.

I did the same thing on my EP. I ended up having to take the axles out and cut the strap on the boot. Put the bearing back in place and repack it with grease. Get a new strap or have a shop put the strap back on. For temporary fix to get to the shop for new straps put a 4' - 5" hose clamp on the boot to hold it. It works.
