I need to extend the lowest portion of my steering linkage about 2.75" for my current project. I had intended to cut the lowest section and have a friend weld some solid rod in, but I have since realized this part is cast steel.....I think. Looking for some opinions on this. It has to be extended at the lowest joint to maintain the proper angle through the firewall.
Is it safe to weld this piece considering the catastrophic outcome if it fails?
