no most yards dont keep the keys they sell them with the bars or toss them out...i went to a few jys and they didnt even know what i was talking about...there like what keys..so im like the adjuster or cam whatever you want to call it then, oh we dont keep them they said. i got mine out of a 01 mazda 2wd so any keys should work. i wonder if the keys in explorers are the same....

the wreckers i go to they just get the car, put it on blocks, and you can go nuts and take whatever you want :p so keys and bars would still be there.
