Rotation & angle of universal joint?

I've been meaning to ask in another thread how others have gone about modeling these instances (for example, in the 850 Fork Lift, I made my own custom 2x2 brick that is 1 LDU too short and mixed it in with proper-sized ones, to allow a connection with one beam that's misaligned with another).

I usually just push the connecting axle further into u-joint ends. As long as the error isn't more than 10-15 ldu then its fine and you'd never know since the parts aren't transparent. See my 8448 model for an example.
