Front Diff And Half Shaft Question

When installing front axle half shafts are they made to just slide in? Or is there a clip inside the carrier?

i would imagine they'd slide into place after u get the splines lined up and would be retained by the spingle...only axles i seen with a C-Clip retention is on rear axles (ford 8.8, GM 10 bolts, etc...) or the ford TTBs (least on the fullsizes).

They slide in. They will sort of 'snap' into place, but there is no retainer.
