Default Re: Rear Axle Messtoration

I would try grinding them off. Its all about finesse. Use a 1/16 or better an 040 cutting wheel. (O40 is a little harder to find at the big box stores.)

I would not worry about any "heat affected zone." The remainder of the axle is plenty strong enough. And while straightness is a concern, it is unlikely welding would have changed the axle housing measurably.
