Pipe cutters work very well and you can mark them so you only cut 1/4" deep, thus not cutting the inner sleeve. You then have a perfect round cut that helps keep camber correct and a little grinding in the groove you made sets up a perfect root weld base. :fing:

try this trick. run the cut off wheel around like you're creating a perforation, then place a pipe/chain wrench and twist it off. you may have to heat a little, but it will keep you from touching the sleeve.

Ian - get really good at this axle cutting... I have a 62 axle that will need it soon. Now to find someone with spring de-arching skills.

I have a friend in Tejas the used the same technique (big ass pipe cutter) and it worked great
