Do you know if it is a completely new spindle or just steel plating welded on to factory spindle?

Its a plated OEM spindle but done the right way. Normal MIG welding of a spindle gusset to the case spindle will cause the spindle itself to become more brittle and thus more likely to break instead of bend under extreme circumstances.

Our gussets are not only more extensive but are TIG welded and can be set up for either Single or Double sheer steering.

I'm curious what kind of filler rod you use when welding to the cast spindle. And any other special procedures you take for ensuring or trying to ensure the cast spindle isn't made more brittle from the welding heat. Personally, I'm not sure anything will be better than a new cast piece .. cast with a different mold. Unless of course someone made a forged billet piece, but that would be crazy expensive .. CNC'd from a single, solid billet of steel.
