CV axle angle

I attempted to put on a 2.5" lift block and new struts on my 2007 Commander Overland over the weekend. When i finally squeezed it in there my CV axle was rubbing the bottom of my strut. Anybody have pics of what their CV axle looks like after the lift is installed?

Thanks

I have some from when I first installed my Crown lift. Unfortunately, the angle doesn't really show the distance between the axle and strut, but there's plenty of clearance on mine.

Thanks for the pic. I replaced my LCA's at the same time and with no jack under the control arms my cv was wedged against the bottom of my strut. I put a jack under the control arm and lifted it till the jeep was lifted off the ground and only had a 1/4" of space between the strut and the cv. I also couldnt attach my upper control arm because it wouldnt reach. I dont know what is going on with it.
