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


A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

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.
