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.
That reference you posted before is for C-Clip eliminators which are not the same as weld on housing ends for the large Ford (3.15" diameter) sealed ball bearings which also eliminate the need for the C-Clip.
