i would like opinion on whethere its good to weld my rear axle to make it into a possy. i am looking for a cheap way to be able to go 4x4ing but i have open diffs and they lick ass... so i was thinking maybe weld the back axle???? but not sure how to do it or how good it would be. any info suggestions greatly appreciated. or any mechanics who work for beer in the kelowna area who wanna rebuild my D60's with/for me....:dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow: [36] [36] [36] [36] [36] [36] [36]

By welding the axle your pretty much putting in a spool. I think youd mentioned in your other thread that you were going to be using the truck as a daily driver, so I dont think I'd recomend it. Unless you dont mind wearing the hell outta the tires on the pavement.

if you do weld it use nickle rods that way youll break an axle before you ever break your diff[cheers]

Yeah, welding is a little bit beyond posi, heh.

Buy a spool, there reasonably priced. If you weld it and don't like it your fucked, at least the spool you can take it out.

And then you wouldnt have to worry about the quality of the weld.

i guess i'll wait till i get the D60's rebuilt they have limited slip just need new seals,bearings and u-joints in the front and seals, bearings in the back. but i appreciate the feedback :)
