Step forward 8 years and this time I will ask for advice before just patching things back together. 77 traveler front spring perch failures. All have failed at one pint except for the passenger front mount.
The rear mounts on each side are the worst. The frame fatigued and the metal that the mounts were welded to pushed through the frame leaving a big hole. Initial repairs involved finding piece of scrap metal and patching the hole then welding perch back on to both the patch piece and the still intact side of the frame rail.
The front perch on the driver side ripped off in Moab on Dec 31st. Same repair performed on the loading dock of the auto parts place in Moab. The guy that was working that day actually went home and picked up his personal welder from the house for us to use. All in all this repair I felt was higher quality than the repairs to the rear perches.
All repairs were done with standard 110 wire feed welder.
I want to cut all these repairs off and do a reverse shackle job. My concerns are welding to the already weakened frame.
Any suggestions on the best methods for patching up the frame??
