You must have a housing fixture to do this. If you don't then you are taking a chance of ruining the axles and differential because of misalignment. You also must have very good welding skils. I've narrowed more than 100 rear ends and I have all of the special tools for the job. I've seen people try to use shortcuts to do this and the results are usually pretty bad.
