I've never heard of a high-pinion 8.8, but that doesn't mean that there isn't one.

The 9" was used in FS Ford, Lincoln and Mercury sedans. They lowered the pinion to get the driveshaft tunnel as low as possible, so it has a notoriously low pinion. An 8.8 is higher, but still below the centerline of the axle.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
