CV/axle reassembly trick

Knowing that those C rings that hold the CV and inner axle together can be a PIA sometimes i thought I would share a trick I learned while rebuilding my Land Cruiser front axle. Just compress the snap ring with a zip tie and then bang the cv/axle on a board and it goes right in, just snip the zip tie afterwards. Never saw this before so I thought I'd share.

I'm building up a 1997 FZJ80 that I bought 2 years ago in New Mexico. Rust free and now getting a front axle rebuild and a 3" lift, 35" KM2's and a rear locker.
