7. The housing was tack welded together.
8. The rear end case was setup to be fully welded in sections. By doing so, it will eliminate some of the heat transfer.
9. Some of the benefits of these housings include being able to weld them from the inside as the axle tubes get placed in a permanent position.
10. Roman looked for the degree of the bracket by leveling out the stock housing.
11. The width of the trailing arms were measured from the stock rear end.
12. The stock trailing arm brackets were removed from the old housing and sand blasted to be cleaned up.
13. The stock brackets were lined up on the Currie Fab 9 housing.
14. Since this rear end was shorter by 2-inches, the skirts and the shock mounts were also pulled away from the outer end, allowing clearance.
15. Once the crew finished the metal work, the trailing arm brackets looked as if they were one piece stamped brackets.
16. The welds were cleaned off by using a wire brush.
17. The final welding for the project came in the form of adding the Currie ID, which was tig welded on.
18. The welding on this housing was finished and left to cool off before it was moved on to the next step.
