Re: Need info on swapping spring over axles

Been there... done that on my 78 Waggie...
Just mount a new perch to the cast housing...ensuring you keep the other side the same grinding down the cast or building up the other side. Remember, to weld steel to cast, you should use a Nickel rod (arc) or flux core MIG. the Nickel is the better way to go but you have to heat up the cast prior to welding.
