ive heard from several people that you must pre-heat the axle housing in order to weld on spring perches. is that only for cast parts (diff housing)? also do you need to use a specfic type of wire ie (flux core) or would .035 wire work ? your help is greatly appreciated

no need to preheat when your welding steel on steel. I prefer the stick welder with a 7018 in it because I can get much better penetration, control, and a better looking weld, but a wire feed will work fine too

As already mentioned and just confirming.....I didn't preheat mine. I've only heard that discussed as it relates to cast parts. I used my 175 mig with .035 wire.
