CV-Boot Removal Help

So I have had a nasty squeal coming out of the front right wheel area for a couple weeks now. I think it is the Exculder Seal in the CV Joint, I would just take off the front right CV boot and replace the seal but I am at school and dont have any of my tools or a jack that is tall enough to get my truck off the ground.
My question is can I cut the clamps off the CV-Boot and slide it over so that I can grease the seal while the tires are still on. Not sure if I have to remove the whole CV Joint to grease it?

Any Ideas or advice would be much appreciated, thanks guys.

Ahhh i doubt it will give you enough slack and room in the system to allow all that to happen honestly. Maybe, but I highly doubt it. Use a big strong block of wood on top of the jack, or find something to safely place under the jack to give it enough room to get under it or something? Kinda hard with no tools lol
