On to the rear axle. This one goes a lot quicker than the front. But we also won't be finishing it up completely right now. We will be stripping it down and then just tack welding the new spring perches until we can get in under the vehicle to set the correct pinion angle. We start by setting the axle up on stands which are on top of one of our rolling work surfaces.

Then remove the brake lines

And drained the diff fluid

Checking the factory pinon angle so we can get a better guesstimate on where to preset the new perches

Then removed the factory perches with a plasma cutter

And cleaned up the housing in preparation for the new perches

A look at the new perches. Much beefier than stock, and feature 3 different mounting locations for the center pin of the springs

Tack welding the new perches into place
