Double U joint question

This probably seems obvious but I cant quite wrap my head around the theory. I need to offset my steering column shaft about an inch to clear my header. Can I use a double u joint to run my steering shaft on a parrallel but offset plane to clear my header? It seems like it would bind and not be possible even with a support bearing. Can anyone please confirm or deny if these work that way?

It would be configured exactly like pictured below.
