Does anyone know if there is any differences between the 11, 12 cv axles and the 13+ cv axles?

You're in luck for CVT, but not sure why the difference in part numbers on the 6-Speed.

Right side driveshaft:
2016: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-J00
2015: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01

I appreciate the reply but I meant physical differences I knew the part numbers where different
Honda stopped making the boot kits and there are no aftermarket boot kits, so I've had to order the axles I cannot even come close to afford new so I had to order them from scrapped cars both half shafts say the 11, 12 is not compatible with 13+ on Honda parts now but I have replaced my drivers side before with I'm almost 100 percent positive an 11, most sellers label the drivers side compatible with 11 and up but the passenger side 11, 12 or 13+
The only passenger side I could find for a manual is labeled as incompatible with 13+ and only for 11 or 12
From the research Ive done and looking at my family members crz the only difference I can see is the joint cup(joint, but I call it a joint cup as it gives a description better) size is slightly smaller on the 11, 12? maybe because of the bigger brakes on the 13+? I forgot the measure this but this part is the only part(along with the boots) that claims its incompatible between years
All the other parts I could order such as the dampener, axle nut, wheel hub, intermediate shaft, etc are the same, from rough measurements(couldnt take the axle off of my family members car) its the same length, circumference and spline
Due to the fact that I cannot order the axle rod itself, the only measurement I could not confirm is length, even tho I did measure it, it was rough and I cannot say for sure based on that
I went ahead and ordered the axle because it was the only one I found across multiple sides for the manual
So I was wondering if anybody else had measured this or ran into this issue before as Im worried Im screwed
The way the CRZs CV axles are the only thing holding them together is the boot
Any work on the steering or transmission requires removing them and its a pain in the ass and very prone to popping the boot I have zero idea why they where designed this way according to what Ive heard from others and from what Ive read the CRZs cv axles are not normal, I dont understand why just the boot holds the axle together but it doesn't seem like it would be safe

I can confirm the 11, 12 axles will fit the 13+
I also confirmed my theory the joint cups are smaller on the 11. 12 which means the 11, 12 will fit the 13+ but the 13+ might not fit the 11, 12
What is strange however is it seems the outboard sides are the same, it seems the inboards are smaller but given it uses the same intermediate shaft I don't see an issue with this
Due to the fact people have turboed and sced 11 and 12s Im also not worried about overloading the axle but at this point it seems to be the only future issue I might encounter
