2000 F250 warn hubs keep breaking

HELP!!!! Factory POS hubs went out some time ago and replaced with warn premimum hubs. The passenger side keeps breaking the inner retaning ring and that hub fails. When the factory hubs failed the hubs actually stayed engaged and I did not find out untill the front drive shaft almost came thru the floorboards! I replaced the driveshaft but could there have been some damage to bearings etc. out by the spindle that could be the cause of the hub breaking? Also where the spindle comes thru the hub it is definitely not centered, is this normal?

Check to see if the bearing wore into the stub shaft. I've seen a few of them do that when one of the hubs stays locked in. This will leave a lot of play in the shaft and allow it to make contact with the hub when it isn't supposed to.

If that is what it is order them from here http://quad4x4.com/ford50f1999-2004.html

They are a fraction of the price of ford shafts and are excellent quality.
