what are the diffrences between 10 bolts??
ok excluding the style of suspension, and lengths of the rearends,
whats the diffrence bewteen a 8.5" ring gear c-clip to the one retained by bearings?

also, what carriers are for what gears in the said rearend?

i just installed a 10 bolt out of a 72 chevelle into my 68 tempest. to find a really odd glitch. the u-joint retainers, on the pinion yoke were not normal GM size.
after going throu a bunch of my stuff and then the neighbors 4 x 4 stuff. i found a set of retainers that work off of a dana 70 HD!

ive never encountered this problem in the 8 or so rearends ive swapped!
can anyone shead any liught on this?

Look on this sites tech section. while its really 4x4 applications, they really have everything you could ever wantto know about axles. hope this helps.
