Which trany service kit 08 4L 2WD

When I went to get a service kit, the guy asked if it had a sump tube. We couldn't find any way to determine. I ended up with two kits and will return one. I'll know when I get the pan off, but how to tell before hand?
Thanks Pat

I suppose it's safe to guess that you're doing a spill-n-fill or a flush on a 5R55E. In this case, the 4X models equipped with this tranny use a deeper pan, hold more fluid, and therefore require usage of a filter that reaches down lower into the pan than the 2WD model uses. This is how you tell before hand, and typically the parts catalogs found at stores that sell good quality, name brand filters (ex, WIX, Motorcraft) will indicate 2WD or 4WD next to the appropriate part number.

You'd think when I told him 2WD that would have separated the part numbers. I'm still no fan of computers.

I found a way to identify the service kit
on the box is listed a fram filter number
FT1115A
Fram site is FT1115B, but that is the 2WD
filter. Must be mislabeled on the box.

4WD kit has fram # 1087 A on the box.
