Default impreza wrx gc8 tail shaft upgrade help?

hi everyone my 1997 impreza gc8 is starting to vibrate a bit now from the centre of the car at low speeds... ive checked my tail shaft and it looks like the u joint has not much play in them now.....ive seen some carbon fibre ones on ebay but the problem is that they are 2002- 2004 and up? theres is a 96 sti gear box 4.44 and a matching lsd rear diff im running so can anyone tell me from there correct knowledge, what years and what carbon tail shafts fits the 97 impreza gc8s? and is there any other mods i have to do to get the carbon tail on correctly?

I have a standard one from a V3 STI if you decide to just replace yours.
