A 2nd gen Ex like yours uses the same bar dimensions as 98+ torsion bar Rangers. Many Explorers, especially those with the 5.0 option, came from the factory with #1's just like the new ones you have.

I agree that is doubtful that your 4.0 2WD already has #1 torsion bars. What I meant is that the new #1 Ranger bars that you have should fit perfectly because the factory put the same parts on certain Gen 2 Explorers.
