Drive axle replacement - HELP!

So I had just recently replaced my passenger side drive axle, and started hearing a knocking sound. After about 100 miles or so, the check engine light came on and the knocking started getting worse so I took a look underneath and the spider inside the inboard joint was loose. After fixing that and putting the drive axle back in, the knocking was still there. I talked to some dudes at autozone and they said I needed to buy a whole new drive axle, because once the rollers were taken out of the inboard joint, it was ruined.

I just wanted to see what your guys opinions were, because I remember in the past I was installing my springs and somehow (don't ask how) the spider came loose. After putting it back in, all was good. So I am a little skeptical on if I really need to buy a new drive axle or not. What do y'all think?

Man they have a life time warrenty. If I thought it were a problem, I'd take off the 36mm and just change it out. Whats an hour of time (trip to store included) to not worry about it anymore. I'm new to hondas sorry if my advise was lame
