BOSS_358 I tried looking it up on the web site but didn't see them but it did not show them for the Mustang either and we know thatís wrong. So if you see them in the catalog and can pass on a part number that would be great THANKS for your help.
How are the axles held in when c-clip eliminators are installed? Does that make the axle semi-floating? I've read some places (it's been a while, so I can't remember where) that c-clip eliminators were not recommended for road racing, only drag racing. I don't know if that has any truth or not, I'm wondering the reason they said that too, because I really don't know. If you look in a Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords, you may see an ad you haven't seen before advertising they work on trucks.... Good luck, and let us know what you find.
Yes i meant summit. Jegs show some for the 8.8 made by strange for stock axles. their part number is 873-A1092 they dont say if they will fit the f series axles though and they state for drag racing only.
Talked to Ford racing a few minutes ago and was told that the M-4220-A C-Clip eliminators did not fit the truck and they are made by Strange for Ford. Talked to Strange and they do not make them for trucks. Called JEGS those donít fit trucks. I have come to the conclusion that they do not exist for this application. So all the people that have mentioned putting these in trucks in past threads are full of it and do not know what they are talking about. Maybe they should by a Honda.
I said it now its out. Somebody shut me up and prove me wrong. Please!! I really donít want to have to make a set.
Just buy rear disc brakes for your F150 and stop complaining
They will keep your axle shafs in place and give you better brakes in the process. I also heard that the C-Clip eliminators are not good for street use and they will leak from the sideloads caused by turning, don't know if thats true or not
Not complaining just want to build a good rear for my tow truck. Have had them in my street driven Mustang for 5 years and have never had a leak. A nine inch will not work with the ABS and speed sensor or I would do that since I have a stack of them. What dream were you having when you saw disk for the rear of a truck 8.8 that will not require C-Clips because Iíll buy them right now. Trucks 8.8ís are different than cars, hence the problem finding the eliminators.
Guess Iíll just run C-Clips until I have time to build or someone starts manufacturing some. Everything else in the drive train is rock solid thatís my only weak link.
Truck runs a 347 with AODE 8.8 3:55ís ARB Air Locker (about to put in 3.73) pulls 5000 pounds of trailer with all equipment and Pro Street Falcon to shows and the track and will run 13.92 quarters with 10 inch slicks thru the mufflers, then pulls the 10 second Falcon home with out a complaint. Not bad for a street/tow truck..
I can see how you might think I was complaining when you have nothing to worry about with a nine inch in your truck and a little old 300 six to putt around in so. If you donít have disk for it I have a set I can hook you up with. What bearing size and axle spline does it have and Iíll let you know if theyíll work
Check with Warn, they used to offer a full floater conversion kit for the 8.8 and late 9", heck call up Strange and Currie and see if they offer a full floater kit for the 8.8"(if it'll work on the late 80-up 9", it'll work on an 8.8"). The key here is to call the off road suppliers, they make tons of cool stuff...
Nice shot at the 300... Some people just never will think outside the box.. Oh well...
The 8.8 for the trucks is barely different than a 8.8 mustang axle. The axle shafts are of uneven length and it's a 31 spline instead of 28. Other then that, the axle is the same so I don't see why it wouldn't work. Ford racing's website said for all 8.8 axles, maybe the guy on the other end of the phone messed up? 4wheelparts.com has a full floater conversion kit, part number WAR 60433.
My little 300 turns my 35" tires plenty fine thank you very much
I wish i had a speedo, heh, the price you gotta pay for getting a $1800 3rd member for $700
I have a 9" off a 1979 bronco, 31 spline shafts, don't know the bearing size, uses the big retaining bolts, i think 1/2". Email me about the discs friction2k3(No Email Addresses In Posts!)
