Anyone know the diameter of the stock axle housing for a 2002 4x4?

If you read: http://www.gmfullsize.com/forum/showthread.php?t=79607

Well, the off road shops here cant seem to find replacement brackets that are at least 1/4 in thick, and the stealership is a bunch of crooks and want almost $700 for it. So I am drawing up some brackets in AutoCAD and going to get them cut on a CNC Plasma cutter, and then have a friend weld them up for me. Now that Im thinking about it, I should cut the holes in them with the CNC also, what diameter would that be?:think:

Thanks - G

3" maybe? If you get it close, any shop worth their nuts can make it fit, regardless which way its off. I'd burn it 3.25" and make it work. So they may have to either A) grind a little more radius or B) fill a little gap. Nothing to be even remotely concerend with IMHO.
