    The rear dana 70 has no shock mounts, and the front dana 70 has shock mounts on the front of the axle, right where my cross over steering goes. Can I just buy some some where or do I need to make some? The axle tubes on these things are huge. I have not measured to make sure, but I think they are 4" diameter.

    I have some hardened steel from a garage door hinge. Can I use that? Will hardened steel weld to the tubes?

    on my front 70 I welded some tabs on the back of the axle. I will take pics and post them. Jesse
