Narrowing 9 inch rear end

I have a Ford 9 inch rear end from a 1976 Ford Ranchero. The rear end is about 2 1/2 inches to wide for my project. When I pulled the axels to check the spline count I noticed the axels are two different lengths by about 2 3/4 inches.

I am thinking why not get another short axel from another Ranchero and shorted one side only, use the second shorter axel and have the width I need.

Seems like it would be a cheap way to narrow the rear end using factory parts????

Pinion would be offset about an inch or so, not enough to make a problem
