To snug the new axle in place, we used a Miller Spectrum 375 Xtreme plasma cutter and an angle grinder to lop off the 9-inch’s spring perches so that they could be relocated and reused. We scavenged the spring plates from the Ford truck that donated its axle and we ordered new Pro Comp F-150 U-bolts.
