A couple of bits of info could help us a lot...
1) What is the pinion yoke angle?
2) What is your TC yoke angle?
3) What gearing you have... if it's numerically low you'll put more stress on the driveshaft.
Your stock driveshaft (single cardan) will only work if it's the correct length and the angles match. Most times that means the rotational center of the TC output and axle input are parallel. Make all your measurements with the vehicle on its wheels at ride height.

Tom Woods site will help you determine how to take length measurements.
