When Idiots do maintenance

So the other day I was looking to see how bad my brakes were since I had pretty horrible pedal feel. I knew I had a leaking brake cylinder or axle seal on the right rear side and this is what I found........ Yes, some idiot snapped all 8 of the bolt heads off and WELDED it together. Needless to say I'm a bit pissed off. I'll probably crawl around in a junkyard this weekend to see if I can find a replacement 10.25. Too bad I can't take this opportunity to lower my gears (numerically) to 3.73's or somesuch.

Yeah I have both die grinders and 4.5" grinders but i'll still have to get all 8 bolts out since they snapped off the heads. That's a whole lot of work with easy outs (probably wouldn't work) or drill and tap (ultra pain in the butt to get it right w/o a mag drill). I would think swapping out axles is less work. Too bad junkyards around here don't have SD's I'd think about swapping both axles out for the newer ones.

if you can get the axle out the hub comes off as a unit and you can save your housing, just replace the hub and you will be good to go.
