View Full Version : Beefing up my Rear........

Ah what a way to spend a Monday. The rear housing has been giving me greif ever since I put my lift in. The way the kit is set up it puts alot of stress on the brackets and housing under full flex. I had a small crack, so I welded it, it cracked again, so I welded it more, it cracked again so I left it for a while. When I got under to have a look on the weekend I couldn't put it off any longer. I should have done this last month when I had the rear apart for a week. If I had just pulled it right out then I would have had the time to work at it. Instead I made the rush decision to pull it, prep it, weld the crack, weld on gussets and repaint it, put it back in all in a day.

I got it out and ready no problem, and Robo (you the man) came to get me and take it to his place for welding. Got it back to my house for painting around 9 30pm and had it ready to go in at 11 30. Problem, I live in a townhouse so that means late night gets done without air tools. Yup another all nighter using hand tools and trying to keep quiet.

For those haters that said I couldn't get it done in a daygo fuck yourself :D . I got it done and it seems alot stronger now. I can't thank Robo enough, once again you came through big time. I owe ya Buddy[36]

Yeah well in the right shop with the right tools it probably could have been done in a few hours............. Not without air tools and having to take the diff across town to weld it.
