View Full Version : axle tube question

11-22-2005, 01:33 PM
ok i looked at my truck today and notice it sags on the one side so i started to measure stuff and found that the l/s leaf hanger bolt is lower then the r/s and started to inspect stuff and i found that my r/s axle tube plug weld was busted and the axle turned so that the angled bolt lifted the r/s up so is it a huge deal just to turn it back and reweld it??

its a fullsize thing! jeep owners just wont understand :p

its fucked look for a new housing even if you get it turned back you cant garentee your bering alignment aand if you have broken all the plug welds i woud think there will be other damage once you start disasembling the axle it woul be a good temp fix but i wouldent trust it for long

Some people are like slinkies. They arn't good for mutch but they Still put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs

fuck weld it up and run the thing I had one do that years ago it still in a truck and running. just twist it back and weld the plug

If I had a vagina it would be as big as a garbage can..
