Default Front Axle CV Joint

While installing new 5100 bilstiens I think I popped a CV joint loose. Can't get the upper ball joint pulled in far enough to insert ball joint into the taper. Feels like the axle pulled out. Any quick fix? Other side went back together just fine.

Doesn't sound fun. I just installed 5100s yesterday. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but I used a floor jack under the lower control arm to raise the whole thing up to meet the UCA ball joint. Mine went up smooth though. I haven't messed with the CV axles at all so I don't know any secrets if one came out.

Pull axle assembly pulled back boot on the inner CV joint and popped the knuckle back in. Installed back into truck and all seems fine. Just got a little out of hand on the lower a arm and slipped against the spindle causing the CV to spread.
