me and my 110v welder were absolutely the problem haha. I'm not sure either. It deflects up 1/8th inch (steadily) between the bracket and the spring perch (so over 4 inches?), so I'm assuming it keeps going. I've tried welding on the back side to try pulling it back. then i welded on the back side AND wrapped a chain around it and a jack and put it under load while it cooled. I'm to the point where i've gotten it red hot so many times i dunno what to think about it.Have you looked at NashvilleTJ's thread? He talks about straightening the 14 bolt he built for his LJ.
How bad do you think it's warped? I think trying to burn that bracket on with your 110V welder is part of the issue. I don't know how bent an axle can be before it isn't useable any longer.
and I'm derailing the thread
p.s. the 220v welder is a dream and i should've just waited till i could get my hands on one. This has definitely been a lesson learned.
