    Re: How to narrow rear end....

    Everytime I see someone do it to theirs they usually have it done for some reason...

    EDIT*

    I think its because the axles run about 3-400 and it usually cost about 600-800 to have it done by a shop...

    I know you can get the shafts directly from moser for 265 pair. I am asking about the housing.

    Txhardhittaz just got his done. I was wondering the same thing, because of all the axle mounts. The shop sectioned the axle tubes towards the ends, so everything else stayed the same. He uses a jig to keep everything square.

    I call BS that it would cost 6-8 because you can re-weld axles together.

    A local brake supplier put it on a jig, machine welded both ends. Blammo.

    I am with you, i never even knew that they would cut and re-weld them i figured loping off the end and then re-splicing the ends is SOP, but i would never want/trust re-welded axles

    most shops will respline the axles if the axle allows it.
    it keeps cost down.
    they usually just the flange off then take off the amont you want and put the flange back on with new bearings and seals.
    im getting mine done for 500$ drop of axle and pick up. and thats with new axles cuz i cant spline mine

    if your axle is bare with no tabs or anything. you can cut it by the pumpking and use straight edges and stands to hold the rear end and tubes. just measure a ****load and use straight edges perpindicular with the flange and measure from end to end. before you weld it up

    and do one side at a time
