    I've been asked to make a pair of these I'm thinking of using en14 for the steel bar and machine the thread and welding steel plate on the end with the two holes in, just wondering on peoples opinions and wether to tig or mig them together?

    Cheers

    I'm totally confident in my work and make many parts for people and myself I'm a fabricator by trade which goes from thin steel to large box section, but suspension parts always puts doubt in my mind I know it shouldn't and I'm sure it's a lot better quality than what you see on eBay from China but for some reason it always plays on my mind??

    That looks neither tig or mig welded. Looks to me it is forged from one piece of steel.
