evilbeef54 I just cut them off with a torch and used a 7 inch grinder to smooth them off.Transfer your stock parking brake cables into the new rearend before you weld on the perches.I hung the rearend in on the u bolts loosely with the pads just setting in place while i set the pinion angle and centered the rear end before I tack welded them on.I dropped the rearend, welded them solid then reinstalled it.The rear springs don't sit level so you have to figure that in if you just measure and weld.I failed to account for that and had to cut mine off and weld on a new set.That's why I went to the trouble to hang it in place before tack welding.I have done allot of things wrong and had to redo them but that's hotrodding
