front driveshaft help

here is my problem i have a 1989 bronco with a hp 44 and i think 14 inches of lift there is 19inches between the top of axle to bottom of frame it is 4linked .It had a Borg Warner 1345 in when i bought the truck drive shaft was fine .i put a 205 in it and the drive shaft is to steep i clocked it down 3 inchs and have a double-cardan shaft that i shaved down for more flex in it.i have 750$ in it now and im putting it in the truck. The easyest thing would put the 1345 back in it not going to happem i dont want to spend a ton of money on high angle ujoint im thinking of lowering the motor 5 inches and building a new kframe any help would be nice

thanks fordman1920032003 i was thinking that but the bronco wheel base is so short i was worried about the back drive shaft so i cut the k frame out today . then i put both drive shats in and lowered the engine down till both shafts were good. i had to lower it 3.5 inchs. so now i will rebuild the kframe and trans crossmember .
