But first you have to break the 8.8 axle for the c-clip to be a problem. If you are hardcore enough to be breaking 8.8 axles, a Dana 44 is not going to be any better. You should be looking into a 35 spline 9" or a Dana 60.On 2002-02-28 13:08, Travis wrote:

8.8 I classify as only an "ok" swap. Sure you get disc brakes, but you still have c-clips. Yes there is a C-Clip eliminator kit out there, but for $200. About the cost of a disc brake conversion kit if you can do it on your own.
Personally, I'de lean toward a D44 or a Ford 9".
