The snap ring on the hub? Yes, absolutely you do need them on. I saw what may have been the same thing where the supposed Ford mechanic said they do not replace them, the bearing is already secure. Well yeah the bearing is secure but without the snap ring and spacer the axle can pull out of the hub. This is Explorer forum but same thing applies/ http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=276306
