95 -98 Explorer rear end questions

In another forum there was mention of the 95 - 98 Explorer rear ends being an 8.8 posi, with 3.73 (possible) gearing, with disk brakes. I'm curious as to the stated width of 59".
Would that be 59" from wheel mounting surface (WMS) to WMS?
What would the leaf spring mounts (center to center) measurement be.
Those have a standard 5 X 4.5" bolt pattern don't they?
Are they ALL posi?

not all posi.

59" is probably from end to end.
