I have a set of 2wd spindles from an 01 Sport Trac. they are almost identical (except 2wd) to my 2000 Ranger 4wd steering knuckles,,,,but the axle centerline is higher by 1/2" which would lower the truck. Between Rangers and Ex's there may be some differences over the years, that's the only one I know of.
Getting back to the 01 vs 04, yes its only the caliper mount holes. I did the 04 swap to my 2000 to get the larger rotors.
