Detroit Locker for Non C-Clip Dana 35?

I have an older LSD Dana 35 which does not use the c-clips to hold the axles in. Well, the clutch discs in the rear end are worn out completely and I am contemplating buying a Detroit Locker for my rear end but... it says I need the c-clip version of the D35.

Any ways around this?

No what you do, or what you install, the D35 will still be a turd. Find a Chrysler 8.25 from a newer XJ Cherokee. If you are going to install a Detroit Locker, you might as well put it in a good axle.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, AR-15 sporting rifles account for nearly 20% of all U.S. firearms sales.
