should fit as long as you keep the adapter on your aw4.. i cant say much about linkage though.. the only problem i can see is the input spline count being different between the 2 t/case.. the count changes at some point but i cant say when.. maybe around 96?? depends what year your t/case are from..

I believe it was either 95 or 96 and from what I keep hearing.. the count has changed in the middle of the model year so short of opening and counting.. you can't be 100% sure (if you're on the split year)....

Do a search on the forums for "tcase" "t-case" and "transfer" and you should find plenty good info this topic has been covered in one shape form or manner quite often recently...

I've found the following link to be pretty useful for information about input spline differences between transmissions and years: http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/np231.htm

An '87 should have a 231 or 242.
