I've got my 4:88 gears, master install kit, and Detroit Locker and think this eliminator is the last thing I need.

I am looking to keep my wheel in place in the event of an axle failure, so I'm looking to eliminate the c-clip and retain the axle otherwise.

I did find a thread mentioning the $500+ Superior Axle & Gear Super88, but it's for Explorer width axles for the Jeep crowd :twak

Ford Racing makes one, but I'm thinking Moser Engineering's looks best. http://www.moserengineering.com/Pages/C-Clip/eliminators.html

I'm thinking mine would need part number 9300 ( 1979-2004 7.5" & 8.8" Mustangs, Capris, & Fox Body Fords (for stock axles - 1.400" seat)). Can anyone confirm the 1.4" seat for me?

Do we think these will work on my '95 F150's 8.8?

I didn't find any golden threads on the subject when I searched, but I won't pretend to be 'advanced' at my searching.

Thanks for input!

For me the only reliable way to do a c-clip eliminator is to use 9'' rear outers welded on the axle tubes. When i was looking into this in 1995 for my mustang 8.8 there were many failures of the c-clip kits on street driven cars. They cant handle side loading and were just a drag race option. Maybe things changed in latter years i dont know

Good info. Thank you. I bet they're no different. Anyone got anything? :popc1:

That's exactly what I found when researching the topic. I don't see any reason to put money into an 8.8 when the 9" conversion is almost bolt-on.

i wanted to also do a c clip eliminator kit, but how about this...
i figured it would be better to just run the c clip and do a rear disc brake conversion. in case of axle shaft failure, you willl
still keep the wheel and axle from passing you, and you get better brakes too

this only applys for guys running a 91 or older bronco/f150 that doesnt require the rear tone ring sensor so the speedo,abs,tach and Od work properly.

There are easy, bolt-on fixes for that too. It's a common swap for desert trucks as the 8.8 just doesn't cut it.
