Re: 1970 XL w/351W & & & Rear Differential is NOT a 9"
You might not have to get the drive shaft altered if the engine and trans are the same.
Mine was something like $60 to shorten, weld and balance, but that was some years back, and that was here in Australia.
Just simply install the drive shaft into the rear of the trans, raise the back up to the diff, and check the length. Make a calculation on how much it needs to be altered, but make sure you have it a little shorter to allow for backward/forward movement.
Then take the drive shaft in to an engineering place who does these things.
