Took a few pics while welding NoSmogs stuff today... Here's what ya see after ya remove the ring gear and pull the carrier halves apart.. Here's the spiders welded to the cross shaft. I tack everything together before I actually weld it. Tack the 4 spots that are welded in the picture, take it out, flip it over and do the same thing on the other side...THEN weld it.. After welding the spiders to the cross shafft, I place the side gear back on top, tacked in in place, took it out, flipped it over, put the other side gear on top and tack that one. Then pull the whole thing out of the carrier and weld at each point where the spiders and side gears meet..16 seperate welds..
