Pull it out, adjust the little c ring on the end that is being a lil bitch, to where the open end of it is facing down, then re install. It probably won't slide in like butter, but with a little extra umph, it will snap in. What helped me with this when I did it, I had an extra person helping, a block of wood, and an oversized hammer. Had the extra person hold the axle strait and in place, placed the block of wood over the threaded part of the shaft so I wouldn't damage it, and gave it a few good hits with the hammer. After 3 hits, the c ring slid past the splines and I shoved the shaft the rest of the way in.

I got it! The reason was I'm an idiot. I had the sway bar out for a while and when I put it back in on of the nuts on the connector came off ( how I have no clue) and punctured the boot.

Needless to say it is out now...

Glad you got it. Here's my "CV Axle Pain thread" with helpful tips if anyone else has the same problem later.
