Re: 12 Bolt Upgrade

It seems like pulling teeth to get the right info ; The ford ends you guys are talking about are fine for the street.
Moser's website had me really confused. Sorry

There are C-clip eliminator kits on the market, but our experience with these has been less than successful. The usual problem is leakage. This may be acceptable for a low mileage drag car but for a street-driven car, this just wonít work. Plus, the pillow blocks required for these conversions means you can do a rear disc brake conversion. The alternative is to take your housing to a specialist, have them cut off the factory housing end, and weld on a new end that uses the popular 3.150-inch large Ford axle bearing that is pressed on to the axle shaft. The axles now are retained by a four-bolt ring that will keep the axle in the housing should there be a problem. While the conversion will require new axles, it isnít that expensive and is the best way to upgrade a 12-bolt or 8.8 Ford rear housing.
