Driveshaft Installation Trouble

Long story short, I was forced out of my lane in traffic, jumped a curb, and heard a whole lot of scraping from the curb underneath my car. I couldn't tell any obvious damage at first, but now a couple weeks later there's a noise that gets louder and louder the faster I go. It's so loud that it makes conversation almost impossible.

I diagnosed this as a broken CV joint. I had just replaced my driveshafts in June, and when I pulled the passenger side out and put the new one back in last time, I had absolutely no difficulty. It slid right out and back into the trans. However, I had to pound this one out and it was quite difficult. Now I'm trying to push the new one back in (exact same brand as the replacement) without much luck.

Are there any tips, tricks, or concerns you could help me with? :\

Thanks in advance!
