how much is a fraction? if its a vl turbo/v8 only two axles it could be was is either that or a vn one but from what ive read vn's are like 20mm longer.
If its only a fraction longer like a couple of mm you may get away with grinding it down some

20mm longer sounds about how much it is too long it , whats happening the axel is is bottoming out in the center before the bearing is fully seated in the housing so there is a heap of movement
