Exclamation Rear differential spun around the axle tubes....

so my rear differential is messed up. the axle tubes stayed where they should but the pins that hold the "pumpkin" to the axle tubes snapped and the whole thing dropped down, pulling the drive shaft out of the slip yoke and now i am a front wheel drive f350... I have been researching this and cant find it... has this happend to anybody? can i just lift it back up get the angles right and weld her up? recommendations on a sheet metal rear end, or brand names, or does any body have an extra axle for sell???

Line everything back up. Then mark it all so you know where the housing is suppose to be. Remove the axle from the truck. Grind the tubes and the housing. With a good welder, weld the tubes to the housing. You will have to replace the pins and weld them in place.

Any good machine shop should be able to do this for you if you do not have the equipment.

Just go to the junk yard and get another one. If the center section spun, it could have distorted the housing and twisted the tubes. Not to mention what it did to the pinion bearing.
