I need to replace my rear driveshaft on my 2008 edge AWD and noticed the 2009-2015 model only has one bearing mount and used ones are much cheaper than the used2007- 2008 shafts, does anyone no if the newer shaft with one bearing mount will bolt up to the 2008 without any issues.

Did you happen to try this?
And was it just a bolt in job?

Should bolt right up.  At least a couple of others have done this already.

Would it matter what year drive shaft I buy as long as it is a 2009 and up?

Here's confirmation that the 2 piece propellor shaft/drive shaft bolts right into place on vehicles with the 3-piece driveshaft.  This is the part number of the new one I ordered (hard to find at the moment):  DT4Z-4R602-A.  Apparently it's used on 2009-2013 AWD Edges.  I used the 2 piece driveshaft on my 2007 Edge SEL+  AWD

 

Shown below in this pic are the two driveshafts side by side.

Any difference in weight/distribution?
