What wire is everyone using for your suspension parts? I’ve been using hobart wire, I don’t remember the PN for it. I bought it from tractor supply. I had my welds crack on a link bracket that I welded on to a solid axle. I stopped using it for suspension parts. I had always arc welded and used 7018 or 6011 rods before that with no failures.

Ordered Enduro Joints this week. Gonna look into where I can source some DOM at.
What size DOM should I use to build hoops and an engine cage?

Ok, I was just making sure. I didn’t wanna have to buy a second mandrel set for the bender when I buy it. I figure 2 sticks ought to be enough to build a set of sliders, shock hoops and an engine cage, huh?
How extensive should the engine cage be?

You’d be surprised how quickly it goes. Your sliders are probably going to take a full stick alone. You might be able to get away with just 2 20’s
