changing shckle hangers??

I was changing the bushings in my shckle hangers when I discovered small hole in the "tube" part of the shackle hanger, so I did some searching on how to get that rivet out of the frame that holds the hanger on and it sounds like it would almost be easier to just cut out the "tube" part and weld in another one the same size. Just wondering if anyone had done this or had any suggestions, bearing in mind I dont have an air chisel. ???

I actually have the same question. My vehicle is a 93 Ranger. How should I go about fixing it. Would welding on a "new" one from a 93 Ranger with a blown motor that may be available be the best bet. Or could I rivet a replacement on in a now welding approach.

You can grind a rivet off.. it's not as fast as a torch, but like they say up town.. a butt's a butt when your in a rut!
