which SYE kit are you using, there are different ones, JB SSYE, or the normal AA SYE

regardless, with 4" you have to measure it, most driveline shops have a website page describing this:

Dennys Driveshaft How To Measure Correctly for driveshafts that fit right

How to measure driveshaft and universal joints

Action Machine Inc - How to Measure a Driveshaft: Includes photos & directions

Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Technical Information

and then there is this:
