Manual Hub problem

I have a 01 F250. I just completed doing upper and lower ball joints and put everything back together. My problem is that when I slide my hubs back in there is not enough room for the external lock ring to seat in the grove (that actually holds the hubs in). I have put contact grease on the back of the hub and axle shaft, the hub is not bottoming out. I removed the o-ring on the hub and that gives it enough clearance for the lock ring. Is that o-ring that difficult to compress or should I just leave it off.

Definitely keep the O-ring it keeps out the crud, and water. Sometimes they are pretty tough, my truck has been fairly easy so far. I coated with a lithium grease before re-installing.

Thanks that was what I had to do. A little bit of grease works wonders.
