Most Fords I've seen and worked on tend to use driveshaft configurations that plug into the gearbox (where a sprung circlip retains them in a groove in the diff), the shafts that unbolt from a flange (which remains in the gearbox meaning you don't lose gearbox oil when you take the driveshafts off and the gearbox out) seem to be mainly a VW thing.
