First time trussing an axle so be nice.
I first spent half a day designing and trial fitting metal. Finally came up wth this.
Here is my donated axle. I had to cut off lower control arm brackets and clean up.
I added some gussets to help keep everything straight.
I tacked on the bottom truss and then went for it. While burning it on I welded a couple of inches at a time at different areas so I would'nt bend the housing, but I stayed at it so the axle would only have to cool once. When I looked up once I was done it was 2am.
