Well according to Mosers web site (biased of course) they are designed to handle rascing applications.
I am guessing that if they can handle racing applications, couldnt they handle slow off roading?:shrug :shrug
They accept bearings so it would convert 8.8's to a FF axle. That would be nice.

All you have to do Is get an c-clip elem kit that has roller bearings not ball. Then you tac weld the bearing to the axle. When I used to race roundy round cars we had problems with 9" rear ends spiting the axles out so they only fix was to weld them.


ball bearings wont take side loads but, cylinder shaped ones will.



The biggest problem with c clip eleminators is that they leak unless you rtv the hell out of them.



You cant run c clips and c clip eleminators cause you have to eithe run special axles that dont have the grove or you have to machine the grove for the c clip off.

I have a 89 Mustang GT that I have done a few mods for running around corners, so I know a little about this. I would not put them on my Mustang and defonantly not my Bronco.

The first thing is as I understand it the eliminators are designed for Mustang 8.8" 28 spline axels and wont fit the truck 32 spline axels, but I may be wrong.

Second they do not like side lowding at all, you can weld the bearing to the axle, but I have also heard of them breaking the bolts where they are mounted to the axle flange.

Go to http://www.corral.net/forums/ and search for c-clip eliminators thos guys have a lot of experiance with them.

I hope this helps:toothless
