|big gear head||GM upgraded the 8.5 to 30 spline in '90, so all 8.5 rear ends from '90 and up are 30 spline.|

|tresi||Most mini spools manufactures do not recommend mini spols to be used on pavement. If you wanting a locked axle just get a spool. I think it was summit that came out with some really inexpensive spools. Ford mini spools are slightly stronger than GM units. GM mini spools are slightly better "Lincoln lockers". Just my opinion.|

|Slammedsi||Is there a way to find out if the axles are 28, 30, 33 without pulling the diff cover and digging in. Rearend is from a 92 suburban.|

|Slammedsi||Ya I know the entire shaft will come out if the c clips break.|

Here's some "food for thought" on what happens to a c-clip axle when it breaks:

Just track use. I have read where peple have broken mini spools. Saying that they are not as strong as a full spool. I haven't used them so I was not sure.

|big gear head||
If you are not going to use c clip eliinators then you will have to use a mini spool. If you are going to use c clkp eliminators then a spool is best.
If this will be used on the street at all then a spool of any kind is a bad idea. They are dangerous on the street.
