There is no difference, other than it is shorter.
They only shorten the part where the axles hide.
Same ratio's.
What is the diff for? your XC Coupe?

Nothing, It is mostly used to fit deeper dish wheels on.
Just a plain XY diff will be fine for the XC, it is an inch shorter than
XA-XC diffs anyway.
If you do get it, be sure the wheels that you have now fit on still, without rubbing on the leaf springs.
