unless your a very good welder i would have a problem with you welding anything on your steering.
you'd be a lot better off and safer notching the frame to get your clearance or moving your column over half an inch to allow for a u-joint.
extending the dd shaft 6 inches out from the support bearing in the end of you column adds a lot of stress to the shaft, especially when you hit a pot hole.
i would not recommend welding an extension on the dd shaft.
