Any shops cut/ turn knuckles in the South Houston area?

Does anyone know of any reputable shops in the area that would cut and turn the knuckles on an axle?

I'm half way between Houston and Galveston and am looking for some place in the general vicinity.

Thanks.

What's up Chris?

Are you trying to get a better pinion angle?

I don't know of any shops but it you PM Dirty Ol Man, (he has done this), he might help for some

Hey Daryl, thanks. Yeah, I'm debating about whether to try and make a custom shaft work or rotate the pinion. It's expensive either way. Not quite there yet... as progress has been slower than anticipated, but that's the only unknown at this point. If only Chevy would have made a high-pinion axle...

Make you a table jig that you bolt you knuckles in to.

pull the carrier and pinion out. Drill out the plug welds at the chunk. Stick a really long pry bar into the pinion hole and put some *** into it.

The hardest part is really getting the plug welds cleaned out.

Texas Auto Gear in North Houston did mine on my Scrambler. They did a great job and came out exact. Dave at Javiers on Clay road may be able to do it too.

I rotated my front 10 degrees and don't have any problems with it. It's a trail only rig though.

Ha, I don't know if your tailgate could handle Rockwells!

Thanks for the info guys. One question though, do you just grind the passenger side spring perch to the correct angle? How to you contend with the studs?

Cut them off with a torch and weld new ones on in the proper place. You can get a new set cheap from many of the vendors on here
