The trick I use is to get the splines seated (confirm by twisting the axle and making sure the wheels turn). Once they're seated, put the outboard splines into the hub, and use the motion of seating the strut to push teh circlip back in. There isn't any surface that you'll want to use tools to pound it in, so I found this to work well.
