[QUOTE=summooreplz;467724]Can I just take it to an auto body shop? Or do I have to take it to a trailer specialist? I guess I should just call around! I live in a small town, hopefully someone can take care of it for me! [QUOTE]

Any competent Welder can do the job. Honestly, getting the old axle off was the worst part of the job on mine. HINT ONE: Make some reference marks on the frame before cutting the old axle off. Your new axle might not mount up just like the old but at least you will not have to start from scratch centering things back up. HINT TWO: After messing around far too long trying to carefully cut the welds between the old mounts and frame I gave up and torched the mounts in two getting the axle out of the way. Then I could actually get at the old mounts and carefully cut them off without damaging the frame.
