EB arms, Are they cast iron or cast steel? Is their a diff? A welder told me that cast steel welds like buter and cast iron needs pre and post heating ( I read the post on cast welding ) I see all these guys welding arms to lenghten and wrist joint but no one talks about the prosess!
Thanks for the help! Kevin

The arms are forged so you can weld on them without much problem. Use a good welder and burn it in there deep.

I can only speak for Toyota arms, and they are cast steel.

you still want to pre heat them and after welding them, warm them down SSSSLOWLY.
