Tires sticking out at bottom is due to a fault with the suspension system and not the CV shaft.
Check the control arms and knuckle for damage to the bushes or ball joints.
If there was any impact damages, the knuckle might be bad.
Check if the CV shaft has been seated correctly at the transmissin side. If it is not fully seated, the shaft would be spinning causing the clacking noise.
