Smile 1987 d21 kingcab driveshaft issue

Hi there! First time caller, long time listener here. I have a 1987 D21 Kingcab with the 2.4 Z24 engine and a standard tranny. My problem here is I need to replace the front half of the 2 piece drive shaft due to a worn out yoke. Apparently, only a 1986 or 1987 shaft from a longbox or Kingcab model will work as the companion flage on these years have a slightly different size bolt pattern/size that mates with the ujoint flange on the rear shaft. So my question is....can I use the short shaft from another year truck (eg.'88-'93) and just replace that companion flange with my own 1987 one? It seems that it is just the one nut that holds it on and if they can be interchangeable, it would save me a lot of time trying to track down either the aforementioned '86/'87 shaft. Has anyone tried this with success?
Thanks bunches
