    i think the shaft has to be in first and the balljoints are a part of the spindle

    with the axle shaft out put the steering knuckle on the balljoints
    unbolt the spindle from the steering knuckle
    insert axle shaft through the hole that the spindle left when you took it off.
    put spindle on
    put hub on

    thats a good blowup of a dana 60 f350 front. but close to what you need.

    knuckle first then shaft then spindle is the way.
