assuming the OP doesnt have something fancy that im not familiar with, and they are OEM shafts... they arent.

some ABS shafts (all ABS shafts used 297 joints) came with larger ears, and a larger diameter shaft. ive found that the larger ears really give no extra strength, as all the "beef" is in the wrong spots. concerning the larger shaft diameter, the shaft still necks down to the same diameter to fit through the axle seal, creating a stress riser. itll just break in the diff, and not at the ear like they normally would (typically the ears fail before the actual shaft, especially in a D30).

besides the different ear styles, and the smaller vs 297 joint, there shouldnt be any other variation in OEM shafts. hopefully the OP chimes in.
