Carrier Bearing Problems

I have an 03 Duramax Dually LB 4X4 that the driveshaft keeps coming out of the transfer case and into the carrier bearing, I thought the CB went bad and replaced it after just 3 years, but the grinding came back during the test drive. Just curious as to why it keeps coming out and hitting the CB? Has anyone else had this problem before? The CB is made for support of the shaft and not for thrust, right? I took pics with my phone to upload if anyone has any questions.

Got to work on the truck again today, I think the slip yoke after the CB was sticking. When the slip yoke went in, it would create suction from the grease I used, then it would stick and pull the front piece back into the CB. I took the slip shaft apart, cleaned it up really good, then put light oil and some grease on it and it works much better. I hope this fixes the problem, so far so good, but its only been about 50 miles so far.
