    to JBweld or to weld, that is the question..

    so I got a bit carried away when cutting out my 4links and I happened to cut one side of my lower control arm mount where it meets the body. Stupid lack of lighting in my garage




    question is will this be safe to jbweld or should I ask a buddy to mig/tig this?

    Thanks

    Weld it. No JB Weld. Weld real metal into that bad boy.

    Reinforce it with more steel while you're at it. Definately weld it. Or have a bodyshop weld it.

    3,500psi tensile strength JB weld...or 70,000psi tensile strength weld. Not a difficult decision.
