Re: Rear end Clear up needed

The 8.8 was used from 1959-2006 and is a 10 bolt cover. The main question is what's the spline count? This you'll have to find out. It will have either 28 or 31 splines. If they both have the same number of splines it'll work out just fine. An easy way to count is to find a small magnet and mark a spline, and as you turn it begin counting until you get back to the first spline. Keep in mind of course that you'll have to change out the gear oil which I would imagine you were planning on anyway.
