These are great recommendations, thank you ��

Good advise should always be valued highly IMO and I will be looking at spring alternatives ��

Put some more work into the ‘bones ��. Turned some bushings for the frame end:

Drilled the ‘bones for a plug weld:

Welded the plug and seam:

Tacked the rest:

Welded solid:

And ground smooth:

I used my MIG welder for this even though I am in the game of building TIG skills. The reason being that the wishbone halves didn’t end up with a perfect fit. It is much easier to bridge a gap with MIG than with TIG (at least at my skill level )
