That is straight off Moser's website.

I'm no expert, I've just been reading up on 12 bolt mods because I plan on taking my 12 bolt to Freddie (big gear head).

I found this; it sounds like the weld-on ends with tapered roller bearings will work good on the street:

Freddie : The Moser 12 bolt would be a good choice. You will want the Truetrac differential for road racing because it is smoother than the Eaton or other differentilas. This will help with traction when turning. You will also want the tapered roller bearings because they handle side loads better. These are 9 inch Ford axle bearings which will eliminate the c clips.
