    Well operation kill a dana 44 has begun. I need to find a place to get some 1.5" .250 wall DOM for my steering. I am also looking to convert to the internal hub design. I need to know where I can find 8 lug internal hubs.
    Any help is big help.
    Thanx

    Hey Matt, did you call Capital metals in Phx they always seem to have a good assortment of metal. As far as the hubs I'm planning on going on a salvage hunt for axles over the next couple of weekends. I could look for ya or better would be you coming with (and helping me not screwing myself on selecting axles /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif)

    Steel tubing comes in 3 basic styles (pipe is different than tube). HREW (hot roled electrically welded, the most common) DOM (drawn over mandrel) and Chro-moly (an alloy of different strengths $$$). HREW has a visable seam on the inside, DOM has a seem but has been made by a different process and therefore shows no seam (thus stronger), Chro-moly uses special elements in the making of it and creates different traits for rigidity, strength, and machinablilty. All my tube work so far is HREW and works fine. I just wont trust it for bashing and steering at the same time.
    I will call southwest cause they are near me. What weekends are you plannin on going out huntin' Jay. I can go on sundays depending on how behind I am on my classes.
