Bracket Mounted On Drivers Side Of Axle

Space is tight on the driver side, with only about 11/2 inches of axletube available between the housing and the inner C. To maximize strength and space, we drilled and tapped into the cast-in leaf spring pad and then made plates that wrapped all the way around the housing, then for good measure added plate that also encases and is welded to the axletube. The driver-side lower control arm mount is also attached to this assembly. We don’t think this thing is going anywhere!
