Default new pads don't match old pads

Bought rear brake pads for 2010 Ford XLT f-150 5.4 motor 4x4. They are not the same the pad as the original pad it is much longer and the spring on top of the outer pads is much smaller.
The hooks that ride on the caliper are the same.

We tried looking at the year before and after 2010, but got the same pad that did not match.

I have never run into this problem with pads before they always look the same.
Any ideas?

Thanks for any help you can give.

I waited until 72,550 to get them changed out only because the pads were still good and I didn't want to pay for two brake jobs. I suffered through those %#%@^& OEM rotors for over 25,000 miles or more after they started warping until I finally couldn't stand it any more. I installed Power Stop Z36 drilled and slotted rotors and matching pads and am a very happy camper 13,000+ miles later.
did i miss something... what does this have to do with the post ?
