Default 5r55e transmission filter question

Hi guys really new to this forum stuff but any way about 3 days ago I swapped from reg trans fluid to amsoil in all drive train components. Today after looking into shift kits I noticed that there are some differences in 2wd filters and 4wd filters. I did have a 2004 edge with the same trans, I had bought the trans fluid and filter about two years ago, so the stuff was just sitting around I used the 2wd filter on my 4wd. I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of any problems with this??? Sorry if too descriptive judt wanted to make sure got it all in there

I've been told that the difference between the filters on the 5R55E is due to a deeper pan on the 4X as opposed to the 2X.

I did notice in the pics it looks as if it has a pick up that sits about an inch and a half lower in trans pan thanks for the reply
