I just noticed on etrailer, there are two 12x2 6 on 5 1/2 drums, diff part# and diff seal. Might indicate you got the wrong drums. The 10" axle and 12" drum theory also sounds possible.

There are two different outer bearings, depending on weight rating. Most Airstreams use the smaller outer bearing, though the larger one will work with the higher capacity drum on the 12x2 spindle.

Has anyone had this broblem before?
Anybody know how this got resolved?

axle problem resolved

After a series of e-mails, telephone calls and pictures Axia axles did the right thing and replaced the axles with new ones. They are installed and fit perfectly. Axis is a stand up company, everyone was a pleasure to work with I would not hesitate to use their products again.
