IMHO, if you find an axle to your liking, offset or not, run it... Despite folks thinking the DS can only be angled downward from TC to pinion, it'll also run sideways at the same time. While many call it a "compound or multiple angle", WBCarver set us all straight years ago that it is in fact a single angle. As long as the joints at either do NOT bind or DS contacting a fuel tank/etc., it ain't gonna hurt a thing!
Case in point, my D44 rear and the TH400/D20 do NOT line up perfectly... 3"-4" difference (BTW, this is from the factory)... outside of trashing a couple joints (which I've attributed to normal due to abuse), it's given me ZERO problems in 5 years...
