One aspect of the 8.8 that we’re not huge fans of is the C-clip axle retainer. The C-clip is what holds your axleshaft in place and is a common failing point in general on virtually all C-clip axles. There are C-clip eliminator kits available from the aftermarket. ECGS also offers an in-house upgrade that deletes the C-clip and replaces the housing ends with a larger set 20 bearing similar to what’s found on the Ford 9-inch.
