The gaskets for the lower thermostat are not in stock locally, so, stock up at RockAuto. I ordered 4 of each. Granted, the usual way I get the housings not to leak is coat the back and front of the front and rear gasket with the gray coolant Permatex, so I might question if the blue fiber gasket is needed at all. But, I have found that method works best vs. straight up RTV. Just a heads up.

Nothing is in stock for these engines. At least that has been my experience. Most everything unique to the 2.8 has to be ordered, and some things you can't get.
