The numbers don't help. I just go by what I see in front of me. The Dana model number just refers to the differential housing. It may or may not have the tubes depending on whether it has a solid front axle or independent suspension.
If you have the twin I-beam suspension, which I don't think they used on Explorers, if the wheels are tipped in on top, you have a ride height problem due to weak or broken springs. If you have a solid axle housing you have bent ball joint studs. If you have the more common upper and lower control arms, more than likely the alignment adjustments have slipped.
