Assembled the axle tubes to ensure they line up and all the parts fit back on. Acquired a set of XJ6 Jag rear springs for set up purposes these will be replace with fully adjustable spring over shocks later. Fitted the aluminum disk caliper brackets, all seem to fit fine.

Welded the four bar supports onto the axle tubes. Did not think about how far it would pull after Tig welding about ¼" total. Then welded the shock brackets on which pulled it back the other way. I had to straighten both sides in the press to realign then re-set up in the lathe to ensure the face plates were parallel with the bearings on the end.
Photo's show the machining of the tubes.

I have decided to manufacture the diff tubes from Stainless Steel. I bought 3" schedule 80 tube and got two pieces of 3/8" plate profile cut for the inside flanges. I used ¼" plates to make the outside flanges. I machined the ends to fit the bearing inside, then tig welded the flanges inside and outside to the tube. I have used ½" grade 8.8 S/Steel bolts and doweled the top for alignment. I think I have gone overboard on strength once more.
These should polish up very nicely. Merry Christmas to all.

After looking at many diffs I decide to have a bolt on tube design. First I had to manufacture the flanges that would be pressed into the diff head these I made from ¾" thick plate welded to schedule 80 boiler tube. Drilled and tapped with ½" threads. I pressed these into the diff heads and welded them on.
