Dana 35 C vs Dana 35 / counter wights on rear hub

I am currenly in the process of painting my alumimun rims. I just noticed that the drivers side rear drum has counter wights. Also my axle that someone else installed is a Dana 35c, out of a 98 TJ. Any thoughts on this. Is the Dana 35c more dureable than the Dana 35? I have had my tires balanced, and the counter wights were put on the inside of the rim as normal. Are the one that are on the drum factory? Or should I remove them? I relize I could of used the search feature to answer half the quistions, I trying to save time got pick my son up from school at 4:30. Thanks alot guys

I believe there is no difference between the 35 and the 35c. And your YJ most likely came with a 35c.
The "C" just stand for custom because they weren't shipped complete from Dana and were fully assembled by Chrysler.

Those weights are just to balance the drum by it'self. I would leave them alone.

Those weights are normal. The drums are balanced from the factory because casting is not perfect.

The axle installed is the same as the axle you have in your YJ. You DO have a dana 35C.
