They changed the axle nut design in 2000 to the castellated type. Would it be a concern to use the older type on a post 2000 axle? I know the torque spec changes, but I don't see any structural differences in the axle itself.

I use the older style nuts on my 2000 and 2001 9-5s. They're far cheaper, and like you say, they didn't change the axles at all. I haven't run into any problems, and seriously doubt that I will.
