Actually all the disc brake cars got the differnt hub/stud shaft/ bearing carrier.
The Cossies also got spherical bearings in the trailing arms rather than bushings.
4x4 cars got the same slightly unequal length half-shafts as Xratties, 2wd cars got the gnarlier stuff.

Early GpA cars used the disc brake bearing carrier with the ears milled off and an alloy adptor/spacer plate for the 4 piston APs; I figured we could all use the "earless" Xratty bearing carriers and make the adaptor things fit them since we all have dozens of spare trailing arms.
