WARN Manual Hub came apart

I have WARN Premium manual hubs in my '02. I couldn't get my passenger side hub to lock in consistently yesterday. When I took it apart today, I found that the inner-most clip holding the hubtogether came out. This is the clip that holds the spring seat into the back of the outer gear. What are your theories on why the hub came apart like this? I'm theorizing it's either worn outermost bearing for the axle or ... due to engaging on hard surfaces.

If you check the forum you'll see I just updated a post on this today. I had the same issue. I talked to Warn and they said that it would be from bearing issues, so check that first. If you check the u-joints and there is a lot of play you could be knocking your hub apart. For me it was simply that the snap ring was too loose. I stretched the inner snap ring out slightly and then pressed the ring back in. Us a pliers to squeeze the ring back in all the way around the hub. Mine didn't seem to seat properly but eventually by working the ring all the way around it has stayed in and hasn't given me any issues since.
