Got the axle brackets welded on, and to answer the question about the center section being cast ? Yes, it is 100% for sure cast. I thought how about I quit researching and just weld something to it and hit it with a hammer, then I'll know. I took a nice 1/4 x 2 flat iron and welded a nice bead on each side of it to the housing and with a small tap with a hammer it broke off. I was however able to notch my one bracket out and gusset it in the middle so I could weld it to the tube, it worked out fine. My newest it's always something is after I got the four link on and the ride height dropped the drive shaft got way to close to my frame X brace so I have to change that now.

Great! I'm sure both of my uppers will land right on top of the cast portions of the tubes.
