pulled axles now a lil more questions

well in process of doing my SPOA I noticed those welded on brackets on the top side of the axle that help keep the u bolts sturdy..should I get them off? if so how do I get them off?

also I would like to know in shackles how long that mid section piece is (the piece in the ceter welded there to keep it sturdy)

Take an angle grinder and cut the spot welds on the little brackets and they'll come off. On the shackles, you could just drill a hole in the center of the shackle and use a bolt.

Re: pulled axles now a lil more questions

Those brackets shouldn't be welded on, if you're talking about the front axle they have the bumpstops on them right? They should come right off, maybe with a hammer if they're rust welded on. If they help to hod the U-bolts in place they'll have to go in order to weld the new perches on. Hope this helps.

Re: pulled axles now a lil more questions

The front ones are welded on with a small spot weld on each side. You could use a hammer and chisel to break the weld. I have done this on some Samurais and was able to get them off. Then just use a small grinder and blend in the weld that is left. The rear ones are not welded.

Take an angle grinder and cut the head off of the bolt. Then......take a punch and knock the bolt out.
