We ground all the paint off the axletube all the way around since we were not sure at this point where the new bracket would land. Proper preparation will help get good welds later. We suggest an engine hoist (or a few strong friends) to help move the 14-bolt, and also ear, eye, and nose safety gear when doing a lot of grinding.
