Welding Front perches on caster?

How are the front perches welded? On the driverside you have to grind back one of the arches on the perch to fit it onto the axle correctly. But that part is cast...and I was told you can't weld to cast.

You can weld to cast, but it won't be as strong as welding to cold-rolled. When I did my SOA, the drivers side perch sits half on the tube, half on the cast. I welded to the cast and it never failed me.
