    I would make the coefficient in front of the y'' a 1, and then use u=y' to reduce it to a first order differential equation. And then use a simple integrating factor technique

    One way I can think of is to make the left side looks like the Cauchy-Euler equation.. \[ x^4y′′ − x^3y′ = 8\]\[ x^2y′′ − xy′ = \frac{8}{x^2}\]Set the left =0 \[\lambda (\lambda -1) - \lambda = 0\]\[\lambda = 0, 2\]\[y_c = c_1x^2+c_2\]And then find the particular solution.
