I have used jeep cherokee and wrangler front shafts shortened for the rear several times with good results. You can grind the weld down, and knock out the end, then cut the tube, tack it, check for straightness, then weld the bead. It won't be balanced, but be plenty good enough for a part time driver and trail rig.
