RIGHT CV AXEL INSTALLATION

1994 Honda Accord

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1994 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 260000 miles

Left axel went in easily with light tapping on outer axel end. However, right axel compresses (about 1 inch at the inner boot) when pressed inward to seat in AT. I am reluctant to pound on the outer end (2-person task), but it still has about 1 inch to go before fully seated into trans-housing. BTW, the old right axel came completely apart at this inner boot upon removal - probably where most of the knocking sound was coming from.
Is there a way to tap/pound against the inner joint areas - past where the compression happens?
What do you recommend.
