Strange problem. Drum/axle size?

I got my new rear end in completely today. The brakes that came with the new rear end were all rusted and broken, so I used the old brakes that work just fine. When I finally went to put on the drum, it wouldn't go on the whole way- the circled part in the picture wouldn't fit through the center hole of the old drums. Can anyone tell me why? I don't know what year the new axle is. I really just know it's an 8.8.

I'll probably just end up using the old axle shafts again if I don't think of anything else.

Not sure what that part of the axle is called

(not my picture)

1996 Ford Ranger STX, 4x4, 4.0L, excab, automatic, power everything. 8.8 28 spline 3.73, K&N FIPK, Expo center console, Mustang dome light w/ LEDs, 2" skyjacker coils
