Yes. AU Auto and manual tailshafts are not interchangable, unlike the E series Auto/Manual.

AU T5 is the same for a Forte or an XR. No difference. Use any AU Manual Tailshaft.

There is only one length AU Manual Tailshaft. Manual was not available from factory in the long wheel base vehicles.

Ute is longer wheelbase vehicle than a sedan.
