2002 700 lift kit

I am putting a 2" lift on my sportsman and not seeing a way to get the cv boot to strut clearance needed. I have ground quite a bit of the strut off already, but just not seeing it being possible to grind enough off. Has everyone that has put a lift on these older models been able to alleviate this issue or am I not the only one?

Was wanting to put 28" mega mayhems on it since this is kind of my beater, but am rethinking this at this point.
