Question f350 3.73 rear axle compatibility

My 02 f350 has a bent rear axle housing. I am trying to locate a new rear from a junkyard but I am having trouble locating the exact axle code. Currently I have a 10.5" 3.73 SRW with the tag reading S409 H as the identification code.

Are any of the other S series or V series rears compatible? or do I need to find the exact ID code?

i'm looking for one as well, but have yet to be 100% sure, its where my noise is coming from. But if i do, i'm just gonna find one out of a srw with 10.5 housing. Think its purdy universal from there. One with 4.10's would be nice..

You don't necessairly need to get the same code. You just need a SRW axle from a 99-04 with the same ratio. You can also choose weather or not to get one with the factory limited slip but it's not worth any extra money.
