I'm trying to reassemble this and when I try to put the snap ring back on the axle it's like the axle is too far back. there isn't enough of the slot to get the clip back in. I try to pull the axle forward out a bit and it doesn't seem to budge.. is this a common issue when I see guys in vids online they don't seem to have this problem.

I usually use a big azz pry bar and pry it out a tad. Usually does the trick

And you need longer snap ring pliers. I got mine at Grainger.

I don't remember the part number, but I just replaced those u-joints on my 06 F250 and I got those inner seals from my local Ford dealer. I don't remember them being that tight, but it's been a few months ago now.

I found this video helpful: htt p s :/ / w ww.youtube.com/watch?v=3zKYMm29Iig&feature=youtu.be&t=1626

After 4 months, those inner seals are still there on my vehicle.

Pry bar worked for me as well. Did you use the proper seal driver to make sure the main seal is in the right place? If not I wonder if it's not far enough onto the axle maybe?

Yea that's what I sort of figured out and of course when I tried it the 1st time I also pulled the dust cover seal back out.. Meaning I had to take it all apart again.. I didn't push the dust cover in far enough the 1st time because I was scared I'd bend it being it's just flimsy metal.

Anyway it's all back together and I'm now trying to sort out my ABS light issue... Being I need this truck DOT inspected I can't have a ABS light on...

I have already replaced one wheel sensor that had a cut line thinking that would fix it, but nope.. I still get a code for the Right front wheel and I'm getting a code for a ABS pump as well..

Yeah I tried multiple different snap ring pliers and finally borrowed a set of mac ones from my uncle and they fit up in there.
