Well I got it back together. I was having difficulty with the transmission side of the driveshaft. Apparently it doesn't hurt to loosen up the bracket a little (coming off the engine) on both sides of the driveshaft to get it tucked in there.

I haven't driven yet, but I'm about to, in the middle of the snowstorm. Hopefully this resolved the problem because the CV Joint definitely does have some play in it. I just replaced my wheel bearings when I did the driveshafts the first time so hopefully this solves the issue and the bearing doesn't have to be done again...
