If you're just narrowing one side to use two short axles and keeping the factory brakes, stay with the ends you have. I had the Ranger axle in my S-10 done this way by a reputable shop and they had to make the cuts on the large part of the tube, inboard of the swedge. I ended up with one Moser axle and one redrilled factory axle, hasn't caused any problems in it's 10 years of service.
