racing axels dont prevent that, tackwelding the shrikpiece that holds the bearing in does. theres some other ways to go about it too but if you get racing type o axels they will be thicker and that will need a bigger bearing so you will need to cut the rearend at the ends and weld on bigger "bearing houses" you can get those frome summit racing, -both the bearing and the "bearing house"
but theres alot of things thats gotta match when doing this like it's gotta have the same splince, lenght e.t.c...

I havent taken my rear end apart yet...I was told there are clips that hold the axles in...I was also told to put a spot weld on these clips to try and help them from pulling out during 3 wheel....so I guess my question is .... what the fuck? Do I need to do anything to a stock rear end to keep axels in or no??? Thanks for you help.

tackwelding the shrinkpieces that holds the bearings in will help the axels from walking out.
there'e c-clips in other axels but not in those and not in ford 9" either, c-clips are better really cuz they keep the axel in the housing.
