Yes. The driveshaft I robbed out of a c3 car works just fine in my t9 car.

All of the Merkur DS yokes interchange. They even match some of the US Ford trannies too.

i was told on merkursport that the length of the front drive shaft from center bearing to guibo is 1.5" difference, but everything else is the same.

any ideas?

The driveshaft could've originally been in a t-9 car. It came out of a parts yard car. All I know is, it fit my car just fine.
