Default Driveshaft length WRX 5spd

Im working on my 08 WRX 5spd manual. Is the center driveshaft 63.5 inches long or 62.5 inches long? I am replacing drive line from engine back. I pulled out the rear driveshaft from my WRX (from transmission to rear differential), and it is 63.5 inches long. All the driveshafts I see for sale on Rock Auto are listed for that car as 62.5 inches long. I am wondering if previous owner installed the wrong driveshaft. The reason I am replacing all this is that that input seal, tranny input shaft bearings, and driveshaft are all destroyed. Metal and parts all thru the diff area and tranny oil. I ordered one from Fleabay and it came pre-destroyed. Frustrated and dont want to order another thing that wont work. I have access to a nice 62.5 inch one for relatively cheap with low miles. I appreciate any info that could help.

Lengths are not common knowledge. I'd say if rockauto says 62.5 is right, go with that.

In the past, wagon and sedan shafts have been the same for the same range of years. I see no reason for that to have changed so . . .

Sedan or hatch, it should not matter and they would be interchangeable.
