Question - why the sleeve over the ball joint carrier, which I assume would be welded in place.
Also I see you have added reinforcing weldments to the join of the arms to the ball joint carrier, but none at the inboard pivot joins. Did you do this because you checked te loads or did a FMEA study?
It's a near copy of an original arm, that's the way they built them
SW won't draw these welds, I may go back and build them from scratch, but it would be difficult.
I think the reason there's no lugs on the inner joints is because of the contact angle, it's much longer meaning more welded area than the outer location where it comes straight in.
