Has anyone cut and turned a rear 80 series FF axle housing. I need to cut and turn a housing I measured back 5/8 from flange and started cutting I'm already quite deep and am not able to see any transition into another piece of material.

I assumed it was a bung pressed into a tube kind of thing but now I'm worried it's a different setup and I'm gonna end up cutting right through housing. Any one have any experience on this housing I've turned plenty of fronts but never a rear

What are you talking about? You want to cut all the brackets on a 80 axle off and re weld them on at a different angle? Or leaf spring perches? Why would you need to cut the axle tubes to rotate the pinion up?
I’m so confused.

I have to run steep pinion angle but need to keep E brake system so I want to move it basically its in the stock position again so cables are not hanging down beneath
