Drive shaft dilemma

I have just recently finished my D30 SAS, and am trying to decide what to do about a drive shaft. I ended up with about 6" of lift over stock in the front and moved the axle 2" forward to allow for the travel angle of the reversed shackles and ended up with the stock drive shaft about 4" too short. I really dont want to keep the stock CV style shaft because I'm afraid that the range of the slip will be too short at full flex. I am looking for info on what y/m/m t-case yoke I could use to to replace the stock flange type yoke in order to run a u-joint there. I would really like to have a shaft with the slip in the middle if anyone has any suggestions on a y/m/m to look at for that. I can always make the shaft longer or shorter as long as it has the travel that i need in the slip. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
