D90 front drive shaft

I have installed new u-joints on the front drive shaft of my 95 D90. When removing it from the vehicle the drive shaft separated at the splines. I know that it was positioned such that the ends were a few degrees apart. But for the life of me I can't get the front of the drive shaft to slide onto the splines. I removed the zerk fitting from the shaft thinking that it wouldn't slide on due to trapped air but that isn't the case. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

Fixed

I could see that the male splines have a coating of some kind that had started to peel back from the end of the spines. I used fine grit sand paper and lightly buffed the end of each spline and cleaned up the groves. I could identify the proper mating of the shaft, as the female end has a journal for grease, and the two splines that it straddles, on the male end, had a build of grease reside in one grove. After a light sanding on the end and careful cleaning of the grooves it slid together very easily.
