have been searching for hours and cant seem to find the answer. Spool with c-clip eliminators and 31 spline axles meant for c-clips? will that work or do i need to buy special axles without the cut for c-clips or what? Thanks.

i don't think you can but i'm not sure. i have them and i just spent the extra and got the right axles. didn't want to spend more if something breaks, and end up doing it twice.
No if you get c clip eliminators axles you will need to modify your 8.8 rear by cutting off the end of the housing and welding on c clip eliminators.
You can use c-clip axles with the eliminators but you have to have the eliminators on the ends of the axles to do so and run a spool. you will also have to cut a small amount off the tubes.. you can have 9in ends welded on or you can get the eliminators from Moser or strange I have the Strange on one of our cars and have been running them for years with no issues with leaks at all mine are the big bearing ones. I have Moser on the other car but have never run it. Friend of mine runs the Mosers on his and also has had no problems with leaks. Thats the thing people say they leak and they will if not installed right. I like the Strange big bearing ones over the Moser any day but that is me. The Strange is a much better design. IMO
Thanks! So, just so I have this right before I spend a bunch of loot. Strange eliminators with regular 31 spline axles (just have to cut down the axle tubes), and spool. uedlose- do you have a link for the "big bearing" version? I appreciate the help! Car transmission completley seized on me the other day after I got into it a little bit and as soon as I let off the gas, everything locked up (trans/rear). I thought I salvaged the rear but then...the car wouldnt even roll in neutral so, might as well just redo everything the right way. Motor is still okay tho (thank god). mods of any kind with a stock AOD do NOT get along. haha.
Never mind. Found em. Thanks again!!
