    talked with the guy who is going to be building my rear last night...
    moser makes a bolt on end like a 9" end but with an 8.8 bolt pattern.

    im thinking i can run fox length axles these weld on ends. cut the tubes back a bit further and use stock SN95 brake brackets. am i correct in this thinking or am i missing something?

    If you're cutting the axle tubes to accomodate the axles (regardless of length), I would think that you could use whatever brake brackets you wanted. You're going to have to weld the axle housing ends onto it once they're cut to size anyway, correct?

    Yep... I get what you're saying. Were it me, I would measure the distance between the end of the tube and the inboard face of the tube bracket. In the end, you'll have Fox length axle tubes with faces welded on specifically for SN95 brackets and won't need any special brake brackets or anything.
