    Ford 8.8 axle query

    I have an axle which came off a Ford Explorer. I want to grind it smooth and paint it, my question is, can I cut these bits off the top of the diff?






    There is a connector in the middle of the 2 protruding pieces, dunno what its for, but I do know that I'm not going to use it.
    Your comments gratefully accepted
    Many thanks

    I think its the spedo sensor.
    you cant remove it as you will have a hole left.i think it has an O ring seal,.alternatively make a plate to go over the hole

    the lugs you can remove
