question about welding spring perches...

when doing a flip kit on our trucks i have heard to ensure that the spring perches are welded fully...can anyone give me a more detailed explanation of what that means?

question about welding spring perches...

on some flip=kits,the way that the new spring plates sit on the other side of the leafs,and,the type of saddle brackets(what positions the top of the leaf to the bottom of the perch) puts undo stress on the spring perches.Some kits are prone to tearing the perch welds off after a couple of months. If you are ever going to drag race it(by your sig,I say yes),i would have someone beef up the factory welds while you have everything apart.It seems that Dodge kinda skimped in that area on some trucks.Hopefully slammed1 will chime in or another member who has encountered that problem.
