That's how those 9" are, there is only a couple inches pressed in there. Farther inboard of that the housing opens up farther so more length of tube doesn't do any good, unless you weld in an internal gusset.JeepinDoug said:Holy sh1t!!!
Total pucker trails.
Nolen, why does the axle look funny? It looks like the tube was butt welded to the center and not pressed in. Did it break the pressed section inside the center?
The older stock 9 inches didn't press in at all, and were just butt welded.
