as long as you do it correctly, and dont get too much heat, youll be fine. What I mean is, weld a little, break, weld some more....

What about it? Spring perches, flanges, shock mounts, tubes, etc. have all been welded to axles.

i welded a little, moved to another. welded a little, moved to another. went around in a circle until i was done. they have take a good beating so far.

getting up this required a lot of articulation as i went at an angle and no problem.


not to mention the repeated flogging it all night(burnouts, donuts, hard launches, off roading).

im happy so far.

Yup your right, and all before the ring pinon and axles have been set. We are talking two different things here.

But have you ever wondered what it does to the fit and pre-load on the axles. The axle is straight, or better be. If the tube is not 100% straight how do you think the fit between the axle and spider gear(S) is.

I just know from past experience. Whenever I have had any spring mounts moved on a rear housing it was done with a fixture to make sure a true alignment through the housing was maintained.
