where to get spoa welded?

I thought it would be easy to have a shop weld up my spring pads... No luck. Called 5 different places and they won't touch an axle with a welder. Not even 4 wheel wholesalers! Where can I get these things welded on in Washington? Help! This is my daily driver and I have the thing apart with the axles in the back of my truck. Not good.

If you can't get them welded locally, you could always drive up to Canada and get Breeze Industries to weld them for you.

Well, how about buying a tig welder and doing it yourself? You can get one for about $300 from Home Depot. I know thats not cheap, but think of all the neat stuff you could weld [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

I can't believe no one will weld it for you. How lame.

Wow, 3 replies in under 5 minutes. Pretty cool. Anyway, I bought a welder a few hours ago but chickened out. I don't think I want my 1st welding project to involve a major component of safety - plus I don't have $300.

Yeah, if you haven't welded before, good choice. Maybe you could weld a few things around the house to practice with.

Re: where to get spoa welded?

what i would do is practice for awhile , if you dont think ya can do it still im sure if you ask some buddies someone will have enough knowledge to do it. If THAT fails, how about local schools and tech centers, theyll usualy do something liek that for learning.
I recommend boxing in the pads when your done to, weld stock from the new ones ot the old ones. I can aalmost garuntee if you dont youll collapse the front of the axles at some point. 3 of ours did it before we knew it was happening.
