Can't get front axle back into differential

Hey fellow iXers. I had a bad front right axle and have removed the old one and am in the process of installing the new one. I am having trouble getting the new front passenger side axle to seat into the differential. The splined shaft with new circlip gets about 3/4 inch from where it needs to be, but I can't get it to snap into place. I installed a new radial seal and everything is clean, but it still will not go. Any hints? Seems to be binding up on the outboard bearing.
