    I assume it's a clean rear end or aftermarket?

    If it's a stock piece, use a mild steel filler like ER80SD2 it has additional deoxidizers in it. If aftermarket tubes are installed, then that opens you up to other specialty fillers like the TIGTECTIC 680 filler or even a plain 312. Some aftermarket tubes are pretty thick and may need preheat. Preheating should be done around the whole tube where the welding is to take place. This will reduce pulling and warping. When we weld on rearends, I always check them for straightness after. You would be amazed how much the tube can bend when heat is applied. If this is a circle track car this step is critical as a tube that is cambered the wrong way will result in less tire patch contacting the track in the corners.

    Good luck!!
