Re: More 8.8\" rear end donor vehicle questions!
This is some good info I came across on an explorer board:
"8.8 came in all explorers v6 and v8 manual and auto but 95 and up came with disc brakes there should be a tag that is 4L10 or just 410 or u could look at the door sticker in the door jam and look at the axle code which would be D2 for LS 4.10 but i can't remember what the open 4.10 code is but somebody else knows it i don't know maybe this helps alittle bit"
something else I found:
"The only other needed item is a u-joint yoke to mount to the 8.8s pinion flange. Spicer PN 2-2-1379. Not sure of cost, but I imagine it's not expensive. The 8.8 has the same snout length as the D35c (YJ) so the stock driveshaft is useable, but it is offset a little, so an SYE with CV shaft is preferred, but not necessary."
"MORE has done numerous 8.8 swaps and would probably be a good source of info on this swap. They sell a spring perch, shock mount and u-bolt kit for $105 for the YJ swap. http://www.mountainoffroad.com"
thanks for the response jun,
