So will the 27 spline C-clip eliminator hold up to 35s and a detroit? Or should I just man up and get the 30 spline eliminator kit and the detroit?

Reason i ask is that I'm gonna do 4.88's and locker(s) f/r but need to upgrade my rear shafts.....I only want to open the D35 up once.....Im on 33's now but when they wear out some 35" MT are goin on. I want to change gears add a rear Detroit and upgrade shafts (C-clip eliminator) all in one weekend and be good to go for quite a few years.

BTW: I already run an Aussie in the front, if that will influence your opinion in any way...

for 35's id go for the super 35 kit, with the c clip eliminator, and the 30 spline locker of your choice. i ran the super 35 kit and 33's, 35's, and 36's with a detroit, and no clip eliminator for years. i think 27 splines is a little small for 35's. jmho

I run the 27 spline Superior Evolution series with the C-Clip Eliminator on 33's. I want to step up to 35's, too and have decided it's probably not the best decision, but I believe it's doable. The 488's add a bit to the mix, too, I would think.

My guess is that if you like that spendy pedal, you're probably making a mistake. Besides, if the cost of the Superior Super 35 is in your budget, you're much better off going that route. Over building is under rated...

You know what? I'll bet you, you won't break the 27 spline Superior Evo shafts, but the R&P is another story...if you go with the 27 spline, then I would also go with Superior R&P so they're all in the same family...might get along better. But I'm only guessing...
