the spring is for a grease seal that is rubber coated, and has a spiral spring around a groove in the seal. This spring keeps the inner sealing lip in contact with the axle as the wheel and seal rotate

Yup. This is why anyone that uses 4wd on these trucks should put some aftermarket hubs on. The stock hubs are junk. One of mine did something similar. I have had warn premium hubs on it since right after I got the truck.

That's ugly. Mine are getting a little tight to turn and I was thinking about replacing them. I was amazed at how much plastic is in the factory hubs. The new ones look nice and I bet they lock much easier.
