Rear CV Driveshaft Alternatives ???

Hallo.

Im going to install a SYE in the next weeks.
Can I install another rear CV driveshaft than a new one?

Does a TJs front CV driveshaft fit when i shorten it?
Or does a XJ front CV driveshaft fit?
Or something else?

I really want to save some money. A new driveshaft + shipping + toll/VAT would cost +500$ for me. A used XJ front driveshaft would cost only 50-100$ +50-100$ for shortening and balancing.

Thanks!
nicolas-eric

No Nicolas, they both use 1310 ujoints at the axle yoke.
