I was just trying to figure out the best way to brace a 7.5 rearend. WHen welding the brace to the cast center section can you just weld it with mig... or should you weld it with arc maybe 7018... how about where the tubes go into the center section..do you weld the tube there... I was planning on running one brace under the housing going from each lower arm mount...is that enough...thank in advance..AJ

I would probably tack weld everything in place with a mig and then finish it out with a 7018 stick.

Now if I understand what your saying then yes weld where the tubes meet the center section and also one brace should be enough (that is if I understand you right.....)
