driveshafts are the same between the 2 but you may need to swap the slip yoke if one is manual and the other is an automatic......... dont have the TQ specs in front of me but you will need 4 new driveshaft bolts, Ford part # N800594-S100

you may not, I was just stating that the slip yokes are different from auto to manual.... now if both cars were manual or both were automatics, you're fine, but if one was an auto and one is a manual, you'll need the matching yoke for the transmission in Your car....
