If you are good with a welder, and know how to measure, you can do it. Measuring is the key. When you buy an Alston back half kit, it comes with some pretty detailed instructions on where to measure and how it goes in. The thought of it being wrong is pretty scary, but everyone had to start somewhere.

You're going to have to have a fixture to hold the carrier bearing saddles and the housing ends in alignment as you weld it together.

You should be set then mach. Alston makes a great kit. The instructions were pretty good like I said. All I can say is quadruple check your measurements, and you should be fine. It sounds like it won't be too stressfull of a project for you. Good luck!!!
