If it has a panhard rod it's live axle.

IRS = independant rear suspension. Live axle= solid rear axle= non IRS. If you look at a solid or live rear axle you can see that there is no way for the unit to flex or hinge anywhere along its length. An IRS rear axle looks (and is) much more complingcated. And as Wraith said above, your question is already answered.
Panhard rod bushes is probably the easiest mechanical job you'll ever do on your car
