Hub won't fit!!

2000 F350 4x4 Super Duty 7.3 liter V8.
I have only owned this truck for the last 15,000 miles (200,000 on it). The front right hub was very hard to turn and engage into the locked position so I decided to replace both of them with Warn hubs. When I got the Warn hubs I can not get the right one to go on. The inner and outer splines will not line up with the hub splines. (I tried for over 2 hrs). I can't get the old one to go back on either. If you take the hub apart you can slide it over the inner and outer spline with no problems, just not together. Their was a small chip on the old hub and I'm assuming the previous owner may of hit something and "bent" the inner spline? It looks centered to me. Is their an efficient way to find out what the problem is or do I just have to take the spline rod out and examine everything? I am pretty new to 4WD and Diesels so I apologize if some of the part names are incorrect. Thanks again for all the help.

Yes, with no luck. I don't know if this matters or not but that side is locked in 4WD and will turn the tire when you turn the U-Joint.
Thanks.

So the side that doesn't have a hub in it turns the wheel when you turn the axle?

that could matter

if thats the case u have a problem unless it's a little drag turning the tire
since the warn hub is what locks the axle shaft to the "tire"
so if it's already locked together you may have a fried needle bearing that may lock it all up?

Yes the tire still turns with the hub out when you turn the U-Joint. Even when I had the old hub in and it became extremely hard to turn wether it was on Free or Lock you could not turn the U-Joint without the wheel turning. It seems to permenantly be locked and I can not get the new Warn hub on. Thanks.

I just reread everything and all you do is shove a screw driver threw the u joint and turn the wheel tell the inner and outer spines line up. While turning the wheel push the hub in tell everything lines up and push it in.
