I broke a 2 posi unit and decided to go with 35 spline axles with c-clip eliminators and a spool.

My driver's side axle is going in at an upward angle. I believe my axle tubes are tweaked. I'm trying to find a place to replace the tube. How much should this cost.

Can the tubes be straightened on a hyd press?


thanks

We've bent our share of axles on mud trucks, easiest way is to determine how much bend your contending with by using levels and angle finders. The we used an I-beam (big enough) to chain the housing to and by supporting, chaining and bending with a 20 ton bottle jack, get it square and weld the tubes in for reinforcement. We always trussed them after that.

OP, Here’s the jig I built. I just retubed this 12 bolt and installed big ford end. I’ve straightened several housings using this setup. You’ll also need an alignment bar and ends to get it true.

That's an impressive beam. And huge. Where do you keep that when not using it LoL
I pull the jack from the beam and stand it up in the corner. Takes up 0 space because it next to the water fountain.

Yes the bar and pucks are Mittler Bro’s.
