The salvage yards should know what else will interchange. That's their business........

Try this:

Are you looking for a full assembly or just ring and pinion? The rear end in the Sport Trac is a Ford 8.8 rear end. I know they use those in a bunch of their cars/trucks (GT Mustangs use the 8.8). The junk yard should be able to cross it over and tell you what fits.

A regular Explorer rear axle is the same.

Not exactly. The 01 & 02 Sport Tracs came with drum brakes on their rear axles.
