Default Driveshaft for automatic question

I don't understand why it's harder to make a driveshaft for an automatic vs a manual. Wouldn't it be the same damn thing???

length is a little different but the joint that connects the tranny to the DS is a bit different also so they have to make sure not to make too much vibration and crap

I am very happy with my Powerhouse shaft in my auto.
Over 8000 miles and tested up to 165 MPH no vibration
