I'm ordering a Ford 9" rear end, what is the difference between a nodular iron and an aluminum center section?

Ford 9" Center Section Types:

Nodular iron center sections are standard on the Ford 9" rear ends that we sell. They are heat treated and stress relieved before any CNC machining is performed. They come standard with an aluminum pinion support and a 1350 pinion yoke.

Moser Thru-Bolt aluminum center sections save up to 14 pounds over the nodular iron center section. They are made from 356-T6 aluminum with 7075-T6 aluminum caps and billet steel adjusters. They feature a super-strong through bolt design to give the case increased strength and decreased ring gear deflection.
