The welds really look great. One thing you could do to improve the weld would be to make sure it's cenetered in the joint. The last picture looks like more of the weld is on the tube than the spring perch, on the very top of it all. It makes for a stronger weld in a case like this for it to have equal coverage on both parts.

Looks like you know what you're doing.

What ^^^ said and I don't know if it's just me or the pictures but it looks like you were moving a little quick with that pass. Try slowing down so you get good penetration of the weld. Other than that it looks good

Was that one steady pass, or is it "tack, tack, tack"?

well there was one tack while the axle was under the jeep, but took the axle out and it was one steady pass after that.
