Whats your fabrication experience level? I dont know the exact frame dimensions/running gear length of the 88's but I have heard of people using the Dodge D50 running gears/frames, I would think these would be similar.
Start by doing some measuring of tire-to-tire lengths, body mount lengths and frame rail widths. I guarantee you will need to do some fabing and welding, if you feel comfortable doing that, then you should be fine.

it would probably fit but i wouldnt recomend it in the long run some times its worth the money to keep a car.
