Doubt it.
Pick up the phone and call them.
My crystal ball is out for repairs, so I have no idea what your local parts store has in stock...

Maybe a driveline specific shop will, prob not your local parts store.

I am not sure about the shape it suppose to be, but why not just go to a u-joint style. You are at 4" of lift. It is just going to go out again.
