front drive shaft issues

ok so i had to remove the front drive shaft in order to fix the wires on the starter of my 2007 commander hemi. it came off pretty good, went back on even better, even made sure it was lined up with marks prior to removal. now after i reinstalled it when i put it in drive or reverse, i hear loud spinning(from engine or tranny?) but no movement when i hit gas. when i put it back in gear it grinds. if i activate 4LO it makes no sounds at all, sounds normal and will move, but it is only the rear wheels moving, nothing from the front. does anybody have any suggestions, chilton does not make a book for it and chrysler won't talk to me until i bring it in. any help will be greatly appreciated.
