Default Blown driveshaft: Are all 02-07 WRX & 2.5i driveshafts the same?

I did some searching, and can't find an answer. Are all the 5spd 02-07 WRX & 2.5i driveshafts the same? Both have the same 5spd it seems and same R160 rear end.

I ask because my driveshaft center joint is near blown and has a lot of play. I'm looking at moving to an aluminum 1 piece unit since I have all the upgraded rear end, engine, trans and diff bushings to support it.

Looking at the driveshaft shop aluminum 1 piece for the 02-07 WRX 5pd w/R160.

Please help before it blows completely i'd like to replace it!

How so?

So far so good on mine. There was cutting, tiny amount of hammering, but mostly cutting of the differential crossmember.

It feels good compared to the sloppy 2 piece. I have poly or group n stuff all over, in back it is mostly poly. Outrigger bushes, diff bushing inserts etc. I may upgrade the diff bushing slip in bits to actual poly bushings.

Lowly 2.5i with tons of porting work, lots of tuning madness (experimental tables being changed) so Maybe 210-220 crank horsepower at most? On a good cold day?
