If you measure from the face of outer CV joint that contacts wheel bearing to other end of shaft, you'll probably find the new driveshafts are shorter. You could also confirm the new driveshafts are too short by installing and tightening the axle locknut on both sides, lowering car to the ground, then feeling where the tripod bearing sits along the grooves of inner driver. Judging from wear cupping of inner driver, tripod should sit about a third to half way down the inner driver from outer edge. (photo)
I don't even take a chance on this happening by simply repairing existing OEM Saab driveshafts.
