Axle/hub issues on a 99 Cherokee Dana 30

Axle/hub issues on a 99 Cherokee classic
I recently replaced both front hubs on my 99 xj and now the passenger side axle has play and is causing the diff to leak out of the axle tube by the hub. If I torque to spec you can see its been pulled out more then before by the clean threads and has no play but makes it leak like crazy. If I tighten the axle but to the point where it was prior to changing the hub the axle slides into the door more and can slide back and forth. Should I just shim the back of the hub and end of the axle to prevent it from pulling out when torqued? Or is my part defective and get a new one to see what happens? Yes everything was installed properly and no washers or spacers ect are missing. Any info will help. The hubs are napa with the pro bearings and 1-1/2" studs
