Default SSD D60 Axle Broken!

Hey guys, while I was doing a install of a new locker in my narrow XR mod SSD D60 Front housing. I found that I had cracked the housing where the tubes meet the differential at some point. One side is cracked almost all the way around the tube. The other side is only cracked in one spot. Since the SSD axles are no longer available I'm trying to come up with a solution to fix it or replace it. Is there other aftermarket housings that will still use the same internals? And be able to have the XR mod? I really don't want to go back to stock housings.

I was thinking of trying to repair it by cutting the tubes the rest of the way off and using some type of JB weld type of adhesive. To adhere the brass XR mod inserts to the diff housing and tubes. The dilemma there is that I would be trying to adhere plastic to brass. From my research there's not many adhesives that will adhere to both materials. The only one I have found that might meet the requirements of structural integrity, flexibility and good bond is permabond ET510. Any of you guys have experience with this product? Any thoughts, help and/or advice is very much appreciated.

I have used Durabond where I work for many difficult to bond materials, like glass to stainless steel. The one big thing I found is it MUST be very clean. It also helps if is a little bit rougher surface. You might want to try sanding a little bit to give it some tooth. I am not sure if it will bond to the plastic though. There is some epoxy made just for plastic that may work better. Hope this helps, good luck.
