    I would say so as longs it's done properly, I've seen the a fresh bung welded in before for additional strength like she did on the frame. I'm not sure if it's just the photo but it looks like it's a fair way down the bone as well which I would personally limit if doing it. I'd also run a gusset support underneath from the axle boss to the mounting point and maybe that's why I think that the perch highlighted might be a bit far down the bone.

    I'd also have the bones magnafluxed to ensure they are crack free items just to safe.

    Another option is torsion bar springs in the frame rails with the attaching arms mirroring the shape of the axle for a cleaner look but I'm bias as I love this look when executed well.
