I found the part number ac delco 179-1133 caliper springs for the 88
I guess I would need 2 springs for each caliper?

You can also get bolts with non-nylon lock nuts. I did this and I like it way more than the pins. Just unbolt when you want to change pads. No pounding out the pins or separating the caliper. I got them in the bulk area of my napa.

I think you can also find clevis pins that work as well. I think when I ordered my pads one set came with spring pins the other came with the clevis and cotter pins.

The 88 calipers use a standard size 1/4" OD roll pin as the pins, I just don't know the length off the top of my head. Next time I pull the pins out of a caliper I am going to measure the length and get some stainless steel roll pins from McMaster Carr to replace them. I might have to buy them a bit longer and cut them to the correct length, but that's no problem.
