I just rebuilt my 12-bolt and have seen some threads that mention "c-clip eliminators". What are they? What do they do?

There are kits that convert your axles to press on wheel bearings so you no longer use the C clips on the ends of the axles to hold them in.

There is a bearing housing that bolts on the end of the housing. I think you need to saw off some of the housing end to install the kit.
They are prone to leaking and not a good deal for a street car. It's a cheap way to convert for drag racing safety. If an axle breaks, the wheel won't fall off the car.

I heard they're not good to use on a corner-carver.

If you have disk brakes, is like having eliminators.

Good point!

Imho, yes it is but NOT as good as doing a full Ford axle housing end conversion!!

Plus, don't know if they will pass tech at the Strip as a true broken axle retaining mechanism?? pdq67
