are you machining the arms, or bending them?

No, I am not running the drag link to the pass arm, going to run it off a chromoly tie rod, that way you steer off of 8 studs vs 4,,
No, they are built around my rigs configuration... Have only basic info saved for future arms...

No, those are not bent, that is called a good welds... And i will stake my life on them..

Welded? We make some too <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">

And I agree - welded arms are fine when you have the right equipment and know how to use it <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">

I used just the bottom caps, ground them down to about 3/16, enough meat so not to distort when they wre welded to the flatbar...

We are doing the same thing with a cut down stock arm that you are doing, the top plate looks like yours too and is just overdrileld to re-use the stock cone washers & nuts.
The arm part is angled and welded on. BTW - that is a single pass weld, and we have tested these to 50k lbs shear in a press and no failure. I am more than confident that the 4 knuckle studs will fail before that weld will <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

How about shock loading or fatique flex stressing?

I'm no metals guy.....just curious about possible failure modes.

I am a failure analyst ;-)

Good points, but I see no reason to, thick and look at how the leverage is aplied, at least on mine. Its also mild steel, so I can't imagine fractures in the metal or the welds.. Heck, look at a stcok arm....

so, we can deam you the failure analyst then?? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
