you are missing part of the tag numbers you posted this:

"27 88 8h02"

88 means 8.8 rear end.

the 27 will mean its a 3.27 gear your missing the 3 and or the L should be between the 3 and 27 if it is a limited slip if its an open there will be a blank space between the 3 and 27...

you can get an explorer disc with a 3.27 open or 3.27 LS 8.8 rear end. if you have the explorer still that it is coming out of look at the door axle tag

here is the explorer numbers on the door

41 - 3.27 open

D1 - 3.27 LS

You shouldn't have a problem finding one with 373 ls. But 410 ls can be a ***** to find.
