I spoke to a 4x4 shop and they said I can weld 1/4 of the spring perch starting at opposite corners letting the weld and axle housing cool between welds, they said the Dana 60 housing is thick enough they have never had a problem. I will use a miller 200 mig welder and let the weld and axle housing cool between welds, I'm also going to lay a wet towel on the end of the axle housing to keep heat from transferring toward the axle seal and bearing.
Thanks for the advice and info!
I think you will be just fine doing it like this.
