Someone with a 2 piece would have to measure the factory angles for you between the two shafts to give you a good number. You can measure it with an angle finder.

Have you considered a one piece shaft? I had Camerota's build me this one to replace my 2 piece.

Yeah Camerota truck parts in Enfield. I did a ton of work on their sales reps 55 chevy so he hooked me up with a good deal but the guy in the driveshaft shop is cool. I'm sure he'd give you the best deal he can.
