Post C-clip eliminators???

I was looking at getting a posi spool for my rear end but it says I need C-clip eliminators. Where can I get these and how do they work, How do they keep the axles from flying out when you take a turn??

Don't know, never worked on a Chevy rear but I bet the tech line @ Summit or Jegs will give you all the info you need including selling you the parts you need!

There are many different types of c-clip eliminator methods but typically they involve replacing the axles roller bearings with ball bearings and using a modified retention plate for the axle. I don't recommend these as the ball bearings wear very quickly compared to roller bearings and once you modify the axle your stuck with it. In my opinion for all the work you would be better off just replacing the axle with a much stronger unit (can you say 9 inch).

I could go on and on describing the alternatives but I happen to have a nice little link here that will answer all your questions. Hope it helps.

BTW a solid mini spool is not the kind of thing to run on the street, you will be twisting axles all the time. They are not that strong but if you want a spool get a full spool, you'll still be twisting axles but at least the spool will stand the abuse.
