Lol that is one hella' funny way to turn your car into a low rider!
After all the work i've done to it, it is staying, the plan is to drive it till i can and do improvement along the way probably during the summer as is better in the winter than my daily driver. Now the question is do i reinforce the axle from the bottom or from the top?It depends on what your long term goals for that car are gonna be! If you plan on keeping it and driving it until the wheels fall off? Then yes Absolutely invest in the upgrades but if you plan on flipping it for a profit then paint that axle and reassemble and move on.
I presume you are talking something like this.Looking at it if i were to flip that jotted i would probably start by removing the spring, slick and brake mounting brackets then i would find a adequate steel pipe that would fit completely around the axle, split it into 2 long wise and then clam shell it around the existing axle and welled it up so that the original axle is incased in the pipe. Wild the brackets back on, paint and put it back on the car. You shouldn't lose any clearance to cause interference issues either.
That makes at least two of us. I doubt this thread/subject could be boring, even if everything went perfectly. The fact that you've been able to overcome so many challenges on this project is pretty cool in and of itself!Not boring at all.
In fact, I'm "watching" the thread.
