I got the ends assembled on the rear end last night. Looks pretty good so onto the axles tonight then I need to figure out the caliper brackets.

When i first read your question I thought it said how not why lol. The early 9" ford rear ends had that on it. The later big bearing ends had it on top and bottom. What they're for I don't know other than maybe identification, if I had to guess.

First step to making a axle.....
Once the stub that inserts into the axle, and the OD is machined I flipped it in the lathe and finished machining the opposite end.......
And the finished product......
