Thinking about making this swap. I’ve searched and haven’t been able to find exactly what it’s going to take.

I’m sure someone has done this.

It looks like the 8.8” is like 1 3/4” narrower. Couldn’t find the difference in spring mounts , I believe the springs mount on top of the axle on a explore. How does that effect Height? I know the yoke is offset but it didn’t look like that would be a problem.

Thanks in advance

Lots of info on here about it.

The height of the rear of the car doesn’t change.

It’s a pretty easy swap once you get into it, if you have some fab skills.
