Mini CV on Cruiser

Hey everyone. I checked the archives, but I didn't really find solid info. With my SOA, OME springs, and long shackles the rear u-joints are binding at slight droop. I guess I'll have to go CV and rotate the pinion up. Do minitruck CVs match any LC bolt pattern at either the t-case or pinion? Is the splining the same, if so it would be possible to use the cv top and then the LC lower part so at least the pinion flanges match. I assume getting a used truck CV and having the length altered is the cheapest option here. Any other ideas? Thanks.

I've got an 84 mini front CV shaft to go in the rear of mine....

The bolt pattern on the CV end matches the bolt pattern on the later TC drum, however, the flange holes need to be drilled larger.

The bolt pattern on the pinion end of the mini driveshaft is a square pattern, so you'll need to redrill a flange for it to work.
