C-clips
 
I know Dana 35 rear ends are no ones favorite but I was wondering if there are and upgrade for c-clips for the axles because the the axle could be the strongest out there but if the c-clip breaks your screwed anyway! So.. just curious because I just ordered some G2 axles of 4Wheel Parts thanks:D

C clips wouldn't scare me. 8.8's are clip axle. If 8.25's had
TJ brackets they would be a common swap, they are c-clip.

That said I've seen, been in, and youtubed enough wheel and shaft roll-aways on D35's to concur with the aversion to them.

The hatred for the Dana 35's has empowered many folks to delight in posting up any and all carnage related to them in just about any way possible. I've yet to see a broken C-clip or button that it slides behind to hold the axle in.

What happens instead is the axle itself breaks just outside the carrier at the base of the splines or real close to it. Upgrading the C-clips or anything in that area wouldn't prevent much of anything from happening.

THIS^^^^ When my 35 gave up, it was the carrier that grenaded. The center pin punched through the differential cover and I replaced the axle all together. The C-Clips were in beautiful shape though...
