Default REAR NARROWING JIG

Anybody on here make and sell rear end narrowing jigs or know someone who does. Just trying to find something cheaper than the $450 to $500 dollars the chassis shops want. THANKS JIM

You can build your own if you have access to a lathe. You can buy shaft stock for your bar at most industrial supply houses.

I had a cheaper one to start, then bought one from CA Chassisworks. The Chassisworks unit is absolutely amazing, and the best on the market in my opinion. As mentioned, you can make your own with a lathe...a couple simple pucks, and a precision ground bar.

Mittler Bros. makes a good one. It fits several popular axles and comes with all necessary adapters and a pinion centering tool.

We use the Mark Williams one. Pricey, but nice. We charge 200 plus the housing ends (aprox 70.00) to narrow, all tig welded, which seems to be about the going rate. Extra if brkts need to be cleaned off or if the housing is bent. 500 to narrow is alot IMO

it is awesome, the center bar is a huge and rock solid, i got theface plate too and built a chest height jig to easily weld the housing together
