Talking 9 inch ends or c clip elims?

9 inch housing ends or c clip eliminators
Which is better? I was told that the 9inch ends will not leak like the c clips elims. Anyone have a reason to get the 9inch ends over the c clips or vice versa?

I have had both. The 9" ends don't leak are stronger

Worth the money

I run c-clip eliminators on my car with no leaking issues....on an 8.8. My kit came with a gasket to help seal things up....not sure if they all do or not.

I looked at going to a 9" but decided to beef up the 8.8 because I was only going to make about 500hp. I was concerned that with only 500 hp the 9" may slow me down because of the added weight or power needed to turn it when compared to an 8.8.

...can't go wrong with a 9" though.

10.91 @ 124mph (60'....1.44)
Stock Short Block, Stock T-5, Stock Computer, 93 Octane, A-Trim....driven like it was stolen

He is not talking about a 9" rear he is talking about using 9" ENDS you buy from moser or stange and they weld on to the 8.8 rear axle tubes after you cut off the old 8.8 ends .

Thats ok seeing you cant see my picture . I will let you know I have 94 GT brakes that are blck zinc coated and slotted with the red cobra calipers with GT pads put in place of the cobra pads as that is the only difference in them and being red . The reason I did that was I had no cores for the parts store and wanted the red calipers for the looks anyway .
