Yes. you scribe a line down the tube and on the C, so that you can line them up after you narrow the axle tube.
this weekend we will get into
1. getting the axle tube piece out of the inner C
2. removing the spring pad and shock mount
3. measuring and cutting down the tube to the correct length
4. reinstalling the inner C, spring pad, & shock mount and welding them up.
