Axle swap vibration

So I installed my axles from dss and took them for a test. I got a crazy vibration so something is wrong. The passenger side is has little to no movement, and the drivers side has a lot more movement. The side that goes into the diff doesn't Look like it's in all the way... like it's not locking in... do I have to hammer it in more? When I do hammer, it seems to bottom out
What's my problem here guys?

The couple pics are where the shaft meets the diff.
For those of you who know or have dss 1400 axles , does this look right?

There is a locking ring. It will POP when you push it in more. Been a few years but I think I used a short 2 x 4 Lol . Just set it up against it and gave it a light tap it poped in. Common sense goes a long way meaning don't use a sledgehammer !

Remove the axle and look at the lock ring. I had one partially come out of the groove. It won't snap in
Standard mods: cam, headers, cai..........etc
