Front driveshaft length between a auto and manual? Close enough to be interchangeable

Front driveshaft length between a auto and manual? Close enough to be interchangeable?

I need a front driveshaft for a auto XJ and I guy on ebay has 1 from his 89' XJ manual. I have a 91' auto AW4. Will it work? What are the differences in length?

Nothing precice but it's around 17.5 for a manual and 19.5 for an auto 87 or later.

I've tried it and it didn't work. I thought I might save myself some time by swapping shafts from my 89/AW4 into my 93/AX15 rather than change the u-joints since the 89 had brand new joints...no go. The shaft was about 2" too long to fit in place.
