If you think Ubolts will hold anything in place under load (braking, swerving etc) you are sadly mistaken.
Do what you feel comfortable doing, just hope you don't kill any one I know.
Then what does if it's a straight axle with leafs or even air bags, My Pete 385 axles ft. & back are held in with U bolts and it's pretty standard for all trucks & trailers to be held in with just U bolts.

Put the sucker in there. Tack it all up. Pull it out, wire wheel all the dirt, rust scale and oil off. Next rotate the axle into a position where you can hit the perches with a nice slow hot uphand. Crank the heat and give it your favorite weave style on the way up and call it a day.

Look, i'm just a punk kid with a shiitload of welding expirience (industrial and at home) I would have no doubts that your lincon 140 can burn those perches on solid.

Try tellin that to any DMV for inspection that you used a 110v machine on any suspension or frame mods and watch them yank that registration out of you're hands..and while you're at it,ask the auto manufacturers why they didn't save a boatload of money on the electricity bill at the plant and just use 110v machines.

Try going to any reputable Welding or Fabrication forum or website and tell them they are ALL WRONG about using more than a 110v machine on suspension of frame mods 1/4" or thicker by CHOICE..come back and let us know how all that went...I'm done with this one,all the facts have been SHOWN and explained over and over....

A "''''''load of expereince at 20 years old?...when did you start welding with the "big dogs"?..at 10 years old??

I'm not even gonna there about the U-bolts TRYING to hold the whole axle in after a spring perch busted loose and flexing all over the place under load stress..if that's the case>>>I'm wondering why they were even welded it at all?
