Points for recognizing a problem!
IMHO, get manual, follow the manual procedure.
There's specific order of bolt torques and procedures to get front axle seated correctly,you need a torque wrench and proper sockets to do so.
(I use the t-wrench every time front tire is changed, along with a general t-check of the triple tree etc.)
Search OTF for "front axle bolt tightening sequence" and such......this work is safety critical, your life is in your hands when doing this work.
