Need to make up some mounts for a set of shackles (the xj is getting leafs in the front). Shackles will be mounted to the underside of the front bumper ... welded. Anyone have any good ideas or tricks for this. I've heard some use the eye of a leaf spring welded on but I'm not sure how spring steel will weld up or hold up. I have both a 185 mig and a stick welder. Do I need something to put bushings in or can I just use steel to bolt the shackle to?
Any ideas or pics would be appreciated. I have some ideas on this but would appreciate input.

thx
kevin

find some pipe/tubing with the correct ID to fit your bushings and then fab a mount. use 1/4" flat stock to fab some tabs to hold the tube to bumper. holesaw some holes in the tabs and weld the tube between.
