Pretty sure its coils vs leaf springs, so no suspension. And I think the trans was a 727 or 518 on '88, so no go there too.

Get a second opinion

X2, totally different suspension, an SJ had leaf springs on all four corners where your ZJ has coil springs on all four corners.
The transmission in the SJ is a 3 speed hydralic controlled transmission where your ZJ has an electronic controlled 4 speed overdrive transmission. Plus, the bellhousing bolt pattern is different on the 360 AMC engine.
