Done for the day. Housing and most brackets are off. Just fighting the pass spring perch. Trying not to gouge the tube too bad.

Why are you cutting it off? There is no reason too. Yes it is cast, but if you preheat it you can weld to it. Especially if you are connecting the truss to alot of other points across the axle... I welded mine to the cast and don't have a single hairline crack in it yet and I've beat on it.

Because you have to cut it off with this truss. It's how it installs.

Missed this Jake. I didn't order it. It was a gift. And I assume your reasoning is because of the locker? But don't worry, it's not like I'll be using the Super 88 kit before I have the Waggy shafts.
