You can order the 8.8 with a matching forged yoke as your driveshaft or go the adapter route. I believe the 8.8 has a flange connection(stock). I ordered mine through east coast gear supply and it was pretty straight forward. Install the sye, measure for new driveshaft and order. You shouldn't have to do anything when you get the 8.8 other than an adapter. I went the forged matching yoke to eliminate extra pieces, just a preference.
