would this be safe enough?

im making some strut mounts for the rear and wanted to know if this pin would be safe enough. i put an old pair of struts is its place and hit it with a hammer just to the point where i made a small dent and it didn't budge. there is about an 1/8" of room for the strut to move back and forth but i can redo it and make it 0.

what do you guys think

Would probably be ok. But why not use a bolt to be sure?

Hi. I think you mean shock not strut. Are you making the rear shocks real easy to get off so you can let the rear drop lower to get the tire off? IMHO I don't like the idea of the shock only held on by an e-clip. What about a regular threaded stud and a nut or rod coupling with small wings welded on so you could loosen and tighten by hand?

No way..........If you hit a dip or top a hill, and the car wants to raise enough, it will rip it right out of there.
