Found a deal on CL for an 8.8 from a 94 explorer with leaf springs. I need to replace mine and I was wondering if they would fit?

Its actually already lowered lol, but the springs on the truck are worn out and one side is missing a spring. So I get an 8.8 and new leaf springs(well only 75k miles) for cheap.

no disk brakes on a 94 if you were hoping to upgrade.

I know that. I wasn't trying to do a disc upgrade right now. Just trying to get some good leaf springs under the truck and also an 8.8. I just did the brakes on my current 7.5 so depending on the shape of that axle I would just swap it all over.
