I busted a Warn stub shaft on my 44 while out on the trail. My custom set up uses a Chevy stub shaft over the Ford since the Chevy is slightly longer allowing me to use the snap ring on the end of the shaft. I had to use a Ford stub as a spare on the trail which did not have the length to allow the use of the snap ring (Wheeled for 3 days like this) Question is, I got a good deal on two Superior alloy stubs but they are both Ford. Will it hurt anything to run these stubs without a snap ring on the end of the shaft. The Ford is maybe 1/4 inch shorter than a Chevy stub.
