    1989 used a 241 T-case which was the first and only year to still use a cable speedo so any 208 will swap in its place otherwise you need a 1 year only t-case if you still want a working speedo without spending more money on items to make it work.

    GM used the NP241 in trucks, suburbans and blazers starting in 1989. 1989 was the only year to use a speedo cable, starting in 1990 they went to electric speedo. All NP208's were a cable speedo and will direct bolt in in place of the NP241.
