You should! It's easy, just like soldering.I wish I could have done that with my filter and lines.. but the "trailblazer SS" intake on mine had the line too close to the rail.. there wasn't room for the filter without crimping the line heavily to bend it upward.
Either way good work. I need to learn how to braze
Looks like his solution was a 2" diameter shaft and some hammer blows.Look for the "stock height" 5.3build by rockrod. He uses a smaller shaft diameter for clearance but I can't remember exactly what it is. 1.25 or 1.5. That .25" of clearance won't be enough if you come down hard on the bump stops
