Question about drive shaft

I am using a GM 350 tranny and a Ford 9" rear in the '32 I am building.
The problem I have when I bolt the 4 link up an dmake adjustments as much as I can the center of the pinion is 3/4" to to the left of center of the car...... will the driveshaft be ok having this angle on it along with the typical pinion angle up 3 degrees?
Will there be any vibration?
Everyone I have talked to said no or they dont think so but I was wondering if anyone else had that problem?
Thanks in advance

The driveshaft u-joints should be OK if you have the pinion set correctly. That much of an offset will show on the finished car. The wheels will be noticably different distances from the body. If the wheels are on centerline,I would not worry about the pinion offset.

A lot of cars came from the factory with the pinion not centred.............won't hurt anything.

Thanks I thought of that and can make that up with a wheel spacer. I guess I was more worried about the U-joints and vibrations.
You guys are great thanks for the help.....wont be long now and this thing will be on the road
