Rear hub seal replacement

Hello Guys,
This is my first post on the forum since buying my truck back in September of last year and it's been great to me since then. However, 2 weeks ago I found a puddle of gear oil on the inside of my rear passenger side wheel. Went to Ford and received the part #2C3Z-1177-AB for a rear hub seal with them using my VIN.
After disassembling everything and driving in the new seal into the hub without issue, the hub will not go back onto the axle because the inside diameter is a tad too small on the seal. Tried heating it up to work it in but that still didn't help.
Been to Autozone, Napa, and O'Reilly's, each giving me something similar to what Ford gave me.

Truck is a 2007 F350 6.0L 4x4 SRW. Did they give me the wrong part, possibly for a DRW? The i.d. on the current seal is too destroyed to cross reference for size.

How much too small are you talking about? When I replaced this same seal on my truck I remember it needing some work to get it reinstalled.

I was able to fix the problem yesterday.
Turns out that the old rear hub seal was more destroyed than I thought and split into 3 pieces. The metal ring to the seal was still on the axle, which I had mistaken for actually being part of the axle.
Removed that metal ring and the new seal along with the hub slid on without an issue.

Thanks for the help.
