help....problems while installing coilovers

Heres the deal,
A couple nites ago i was TRYING to install Dropzone Coilovers in my 91 Integra. Well we rean into a problem. It seems the CV Joint on the front driver side came out of place while we had the strut out and it felt like it went back in but now when we put the bolt from the hub into the lower control arm the wheel stays in a downward position. Its like we dont have the axle pushed in all the way…like an inch and a half and it would work. Has this ever happened to anyone else out there or does it sound like i need a whole new driveaxle. Ive been workin on it for the past 2 days and i havent made any progress…suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
