Just look at it. If the driveshaft comes into the axle above center, it's high pinon...otherwise, low. Probably high pinon.

it's going to have a high pinion, and in 89 there's a good chance it's a vacuum disconnect axle.

It doesn't matter as far as the lockright is concerned, they only make one locker for both.
