You won't break it break it. You'll just wear the U joint out sooner. You're probably right in this instance. The axles need to be parallel with your welded diff. Ironic username btw.

lol thanks. But if you think about that 12mm will effect short axles more than longer driveshaft. Angle change on the driveshaft itself won't be that big, so i won't be too worry about it. But yeah in a long run it prolly will wear out ujoints faster.
