    You just have to check the amount of slip available to see if the shaft will stand the extra extension.

    I don't have a problem with a spacer for the driveshaft, it's an extra part and in general the more parts the worse off you are but there's no reason it wouldn't work in your case. Check the cost to re-tube the shaft first, it may be close to the same as a spacer.
