The Sr86,88(d, He3)Rb85,87 reactions were studied at a bombarding energy of 28 MeV and angular distributions were obtained for all observed states. Spectroscopic factors were extracted from distorted-wave Born-approximation calculations of the cross sections. These spectroscopic factors, and those from the Sr86,88(He3,d)Y87,89 reactions, were renormalized to satisfy sum-rule constraints. Some configuration mixing in the ground state of Sr88 is inferred. The two g92 neutron holes in Sr86 produce very sizable rearrangements of the proton orbital populations in Sr86.
