I need some advice/help bad.....

This is on a 2012 850xp with the WaWa option.

I recently tore my inner rear cv boot. I picked up an aftermarket replacement boot at my local ATV shop, (not Polaris brand). I took the axle off myself and had my local mechanic swap out the boot. No problems.

I put everything back together. I notice that the axle is now coming out the of diff. I can see about 1/2 inch of threads. I take everything back apart, check everything. Axle nut tension, snap ring on the axle looks good, cleaned the axle, cleaned the diff, greased the axle, greased the diff. and it will NOT STAY IN! Should I order a new snap ring for the axle? Is it possible that the new boot (it is a bit small in diameter than the original) is causing the axle to pull out. I checked for slack in the CV and it moves in and out freely. I don't know what else I can do... Please advise.

Any suggestions or advice are welcome.
