Re: 2010 cracked rear axle remedy?
Well, I thought about that and even just stop drill the crack without welding. My gut feeling was that with all the grease that's in that axle tube it would be a big problem trying to weld it. I do have a small wire welder which might do it but the idea of the crack getting contamination from the grease stopped me on that one.
