Dana 44 is it high pinion?

Is the dana 44 that came stock in a few xj's a high pinion axle? What about the 8.8 from an explorer?

The XJ D44 is low pinion. I think the 8.8 is also.

Just FYI, for stock axles a low pinion is stronger than high pinion in the rear. Thats why most are low pinion! For the front axle, high pinion is stronger.
