AMC 20 Truss

Spun the diff on the tubes a while back, cut the spring perches, ran a bead around the tubes, put a support bracket on the center diff sides, built/installed a truss across top, realigned the driveshaft and rewelded purches.

I just had a truss welded to mine and the tubes welded also. Mine had 2 plug welds on each side (above and below the diff. spreader holes) that were welded from the factory. Did your have them?
