There is enough engagement between the output shaft and yoke to compensate for the thickness of the adapter plate so you don't need to do anything to the driveshaft. I would be sure the U-joints are good since you have it out anyway.

Be sure to use the washer/spacers between the flexplate and torque converter to space it properly to compensate for the adapter thickness. That should be covered in the instructions.
