Default Axle popped out won't lock back in!

Hey guys, a couple days ago I lowered my car(06 sti) on RCE yellows. Yesterday when I was driving it seemed like my clutch started suddenly slipping, and upon further inspection it appeared that my rear passenger side axle popped out of the diff.
I can wrestle with it for awhile and eventually get it back in diff, but it doesn't seem like it actually locks in, it pops out an inch or so after I finally get it pushed in, and then pops back out once I drop the car down from the jack

Anyone have any suggestions on this?

I ran into the same problem on a lowered 02. I had to install new retainers.

Undo the bottom bolts on the coilovers on the rear, then push the hub from the top as far in as you can and bolt them up. Do your rear wheels look like they may have some positive camber?
