forgot to ask, is the 5-speed cars 3:55's? or the autos 3:73's or the other way around.
i;m assuming (hoping) the rear is an 8.8"?
in the 1988's?

Yes it is an 8.8 rear. It's four lug though. My 5-speed has 3.55 rear gears, I think 3.73s were optional.

I got a 3.73, 8.8 rear end out of a 88 AOD car

I think some of the earlier turbocoups had the small rear end
