View Full Version : Spring Saddle

26th Mar 2020, 09:40 PM
I have a worn spring saddle on my Jeep rear axle housing , the spring bolt centre locating hole is elongated to a large degree . I am thinking of welding up the worn area and then boring the hole to size .. I think the metal is cast steel , the saddles are welded to the housing at the factory. Somebody on another forum suggested boring the hole oversize then fit a bush .
