johnsongrass1 install a front yoke and pull it out 1" measure from center of U joint cap to center or rear cap. Use this measurment at the junk yard or give it too the driveshaft company making one for you.

Not quite sure I understand your question just measure the same way at the wereckers. If you are having one made or cut down just subtract .750" from that measurment unless you have a lot of suspension travel then subtract 1".
Hope this helps.
