Drive shaft question

I have a 2 piece drive shaft and im thinking of doing shackles in the back and once i do that i know i will have bad vibrations. I know a 98 plus shaft is what i need but what year did it switch to a slip style at that tcase from the bolt style.

Bolt Style



also did the pre 93 trucks have a one piece shaft that i could use on my 94.


Thanks
