Dana 60 stub axle question

Hello, I've been lurking on the site for a while and now I have a question. I'm in the process of swapping to a dana 60 on my 96 250. On my axle the outer stub shaft does not have a groove for the snap ring. All the pictures I've seen show a groove and a snap ring at the outer part of the splines at the lockout. I would assume the snap ring helps hold the shaft tight to the spindle for the seals to work better. Also the "slinger" that goes on the stub before the spindle seal, is it needed? If not is it recommended? I got my axle with no hubs and the spindles were trashed so I never saw how this one went together from the knuckle out. Any input would help, Thanks.

The outer snap ring is not necessary on the d60 like it is on the ttb50. The slinger is not needed but it does help keep trash out of the axle tubes. Make sure that the seal surface on the back side of the spindles is clean, smooth and lubricated with a light coat of grease before installing or your spindle seals won't last very long.

ball joint d60?
the spindle seal is different then the older style. takes a different part number entirely

if you want to run older hubs you can make a snapring groove. I just swapped my hubs for 1978 vintage Spicer hubs as my hubs had excessive play in them.
I just made a groove with an angle grinder and cutoff disc
