moog ss won't fit :s

Decided to install my steering stabilizer while i'm waiting on the lift kit to arrive. I took off the old one only to find out that the moog wont fit. Correct me if im wrong, i tried putting the blue boot towards the wheel? Right? the clamp is too small do i have to buy some conversion kit? :s

Moog next to the mounting bracket

I think you should move the blue boot side to the other side of the tie rod so its not at such an angle.... cause that just doesn't look right to me but I could be wrong

Your wheel side is too far up. If you cycle the steering wheel you'll find the SS moves closer to the axle. Loosen the tire side then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right. Move the SS just so it doesn't hit axle.
