i'd have some doubts as to the straightness of that front axle housing by looking at the center link. if it was bent from an impact, the housing could be too.

The guy i bought the axle off of said the center link was off another truck so they bent the center link to make it fit. and the housing looks pretty straight

Check the housing before you do anything... Seriously - that centerlink looks like a stock mini truck center link. Do not allow yourself to go through all of this work only to find a bent housing.

Hey brian when i got my truck i came with that bent center link. I did not bent it to make it fit! It was already like that! My uncle gave me that axle with a strait center link. I took off the strait center link and put it on my truck. I just put the bent center link on that one so when i move it around the garage it would be easier to pickup! I dont think the axle is bent.

ok cool thanks man. yeah when i was lookin at it, it didnt look bent so im not realy worried about it.

and here is the story on the nor-cal perpenelia, theres a group of people who think nor-cal and so-cal should be separated into to states for tax reasons and water distribution reasons, then the nor-cal and so-cal thing turned into a clothing deal. well thats what ive heard
