I have a open 8.8 in my 92 4.0. So like djfllmn said not all are ls, but yes the 8.8 is stronger, more heavy duty if you wish. I think code R6 is an 8.8 lim slip.

There most definitely is an R6 code, as well as, R7, R8, R5... all are 8.8 limited slip rearends. With that said, these are all geared differently. Hell heres the codes list...

If your going from a 7.5 to 8.8 you'll need new wider ubolts. You'll also need the plate that sits above the leafs from the donor vehicle.
