Yes you can shorten twice if you need to. Johnny Mopar , You have to have some room for your driveshaft sliding yoke to move in and out a little bit in your tailhousing. When the rear suspension rides up the shaft slides in, when the suspension travels down the shaft slides out. So sitting parked you need to have a little bit of the sliding part of the yoke exposed, that way when the rear axle rides up you will have some to slide in with out battering your tailstock seal. About a inch or inch and a quarter should do it.
