I am suspicious that the 3,500 pound rated axle may be high carbon steel and need to know if I should heat it or not. Someone has already reinforced it but the bend is always between the hub and the springs anyway. I want to strip the hub off, heat it and bend it straight. How do I put enough pressure on it without hammering the spindle and ruining it and any advice on aligning it without putting the hub and wheel back on. I was thinking about making a bar that would fit the backing flange and using that to bend the axle back. I would love a simpler way. Maybe a new axle?
No announcement yet.
