Shared IP on internal network

I am looking to setup HAProxy as a load balancer for a galera cluster on the internal network. I planned to use keepalive and shared ips to have the load balancer be fully redundant. unfortunately it looks like I can only set up shared IPs on the public network. I know the private network isn't really private, but all our hosts have appropriate firewall rules. How would we do a shared ip on the internal network?

I would just use a nodebalancer, but you can't set detailed firewall rules on a nodebalancer. You can also not put a nodebalancer on the internal network either.
