Gotta ask, is the gusset on my 85 front axle solid or can I grind slots in it for the U-bolts to slide into for my front flip. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

On mine, the gusset is flat bottomed. I got a set of square ended U-bolts for it, but I would like to slot the gusset to slide round U-bolts into it.

I found U-bolts that 4wd shops are taking off
of Ford super dutys when they lift them fit the gusseted LF Toyota axle perfectly. It is more squarish than the u-bolts that came with my allpro kit. I got mine for free.

In two years I have never had a problem with the round U-bolts on the square bottom. I would not grind them, I would weld some type of channels to the housing if I ever start having problems with the U-bolts moving. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">
