Will Welding of dana60 case crack it?

Will welding brackets on a dana60 diff housing crack it or distort it?
Since the houseing is cast.
I mean right on top of the houseing. I'm planing on making a angled swing arm type suspension with two tie rods on top center running out wards, then running 1/4 leafs.

Ok so i need to preheat an area as big as i can? 300~500 deg.
peen the weld after I'm done with each weld, then insulate.
Well four peices of metel 3/8" thick, 8 welds, all 2" long.
or a peice of chanel up side down ground to mach the curve of the diff then weld the brakets on top. two welds 4" long.
how would you do it?

Nickle electrode and stick welding?
I think that a weld along the radius would be best right? a crack or stress would have to travel two directions.
