For a long time I heard your not supposed to weld steel to any kind of pot metal / cast metal. Just what I heard. GLWS

tacoma spindles are made of cast steel not pot metal or cast iron so it makes it ok to weld on as long as u can make penetration and are confident in your welds. heres a couple pics of the truck, ihavnt got the spindles on yet though. its currently laid out on a ball joint flip






rendering in progress now but heres a sneak peak
