dana 35 axle kit

Anyone know a cheap axle kit to strengthen my Dana 35? I found some but they all included lockers. I really dont want to spend 1300 dollars. Im a mild wheeler so I'm not really concerned with lockers (for now). Thanks

Superior c-clip eliminator kit with 27 spline chromo axle shafts.

Inexpensive, no locker, stronger axles and bearings, easy install.

More importantly, if it does break, your axle and tire will not come flying off.

License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

Just to play the bad guy, ive heard the c clip eliminators cause alot of stress on the bearings and cause leaking problems.

I couldve went with a c clip elim for my 8.8, but the clips arent the weak spot.

The Superior kit is "guaranteed" not to leak and replaces the stock bearings with D44 style... They also have a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Looking at the axles I see you can get bigger more spline axles. But would you not have to change the spider gears in the carrier for the axles?
