When fully assembled, the axle (should) be fully seated. Had a few instances where the axle was not seated into the snap ring and it was nearly impossible to assemble the lower control arm to the hub.
What it sounds to me is that you dropped one or more balls from the inner joint.
Rearguardless of what happened, Yes, i would strongly advise you to remove the entire axle and inspect the condition of the inner CV and the transaxle's receiving end for the axle shaft. Its hard to tell whats going on as to why. Besides you would have to remove it to service the inner properly.
What part did you get and where did you get it from. Possible that its not the correct shaft. It would not be the first time that a CV axle was not properly assembled from autocrap store manufacturers.
