Ok, I read an old thread in which Mace (if you're out there Mace please chime in) talked about cutting a front housing, removing the knuckle (is there an inner piece that aligns this???) and welding in a piece of tubing thus "stretching" the housing. I'm on the fence about going to an FJ80 front axle or stretching the one I have. I already have the right gear ratio and Longfields, some money invested there that I would like to not have to spend again. Obviously I would need longer inner axles if I did this. So, if anybody has done this, or can give me pointers, tell me where to get a longer inner axle, how the front housing is constructed and how you cut it, etc. please do! Thanks in advance.
