I'll give that mono spring some thought. As for the perch bolt, I will go back the drawing board. Although a.5/8 bolt will hold.on sh!;ear strength the barrel end. being only 1/8 thick. may crack. Maybe an under lying bracket that uses the perch bolt hole and an additional u-bolt around the axel. Welding to the axel sounds dangerous. I am not sure it is as tough as a rear axel housing as it is designed to bend for camber adjustments. I will post my next idea....Thank you!
