Body lift and steering shaft

I finally put in a 3 inch body lift today. Wouldn't advise doing it again, but its done. How much should the steering shaft slide? When I put the blocks in I really jacked the drivers side up because of the way my jack was positioned. Then after I was all done, I slid the boot from the steering shaft seam, and it looked like it had already slid about 1/2 inch or so. Does this sound right? If it doesn't slide apart far enough, what can happen?

Also, I wasn't able to bolt my shifter boot back in the same place because the shifter wouldn't go back far enough(had to do some generous trimming). Is this common with this lift?
