I would go by a driveshaft shop in your area that does a lot of work or get a recommendation for one. Ask him how much it would be shorten it. It seems like it would cheapier to shorten the one you have alittle than buy another one and have it lengthened. I don't know much about spacers on driveshafts but it doesn't sound like a good idea.
