you can't properly weld a 9". Its due to the case design. SERIOUSLY.
The case is completely closed and you have to open it up to weld it. In doing so, it will distort and you won't get it back together.

A mini spool and chromoly cross pin is only 50 bucks.

Check the 4x4 shops, or hot rod places. spools for a 9" are very common.

k ill give u a call today tyson.
and the diff between a mini spool and a full spool is a mini spool just replaces the spiders gears in a open carrier and locks both axles together. and a full spool replaces the carrier its self u put ur gears on it and it locks the axles together. he only diff between the 2 i can c is a full spool is going to be a bit lighter.

a locker would be best for u. a spool is to hard on stuff for street driving i think wears tires bad cuz it wont let the inside tire spin a diff spend when u are corning causing the tire to spin. and driving a spool on the street will put alot of stress on axles and other drivetrain parts.
sorry i never called youngun turns out one of the guys at work had one kicking around thanks tho.
