Brackets Weld

Assuming you do not have a '78-'79 Ford Dana 44 (in which case no welding is required), the axle welding is the only part you might not be able to do at home. If you don't have a welder, mark off where you want the axle brackets to sit on the axle and take it to be welded up. Make sure to account for axle caster because once those brackets are on the axle there is no turning them. While you're at the welder's, you'll also want to remember to get the track-bar bracket welded on, as this is the only other thing that has to be welded in place.
