Rear sway bar question

A guy came into work the other day with what I could tell was a Super Duty rear axle in the bed of his truck. I noticed that it had a sway bar on it. I asked him if I could have it and he said that if they didn't use it, he'd bring it to me. A couple of hours later, he brought it to me and said they were just gonna throw it in the trash. Anyway, the truck that they were working on was an Excursion but he said that he didn't know what the axle was out of (Super Duty or Excursion). My question is, if the axle was out of an Excursion, will the sway bar still work on my truck? If so, what else do I need to make it work(beside end links)? Here's a pic of everything that he gave me

Check out Ebay or other sites for the same item for sale and see what vehicles they fit. That's how I found out that the rear differential cover on my '97 F350 was the same as an the Excursion it came off of.

Correct Eric all you need are the end links. The thing I cant remember though is if the rear sway bar on an EX is the same as a superduty

I would assume that it would be the same but I'd hate to put any money into it and find out that it wouldn't work Also, where would be the cheapest place to get end links
