Actually 2010 is when they went disc brakes.
But I'll agree with everyone else the explorer axle is the way to go. I went that way and am very glad I did. If you can't do the welding yourself, find a reputable shop around you that can. There's a guy here that does it daily and I brought him the axle and he welded the shock mounts, flipped the leaf spring flanges and welded the tubes for $100.
