Double Cardan Joint

I am putting a 7 inch lift on my 1979 chevy 1/2 ton shortbox. I am wondering if I would be able to take a double cardan joint off a front driveshaft and put it on the rear driveshaft for more angle flexibility. Or any suggestions as to what I should do to my front and rear driveshafts to handle the angle of the 7 inch lift without spending a ton of money. THANKS

I've seen this used on 2WD trucks several times when the truck is lifted
