i guess i was trying to say once you swap the passenger axle to the driver side your left with the drivers side in your hand which is 6 inches longer than the one you need to have made.

or maybe i cant add, i donno

so whats the best way to cut and align the axle tubes together after before welding. ive seen jigs that fit through the axle and get held in by the carrier bearing mounts, that have conical ends that center the end of the axles together.

pics of anyones experiences doing this would be great
