850 Front Axle/spindle stops

I have a Ford 850. The axle/spindle stops are worn to the ppoint that the front tires tend to lay over if i made a sharp turn or hit a rock. This happens more on the right side than the left, but both sides are worn.

There isn't much slop in the bearings and the spindle bushings seem good.

Has anyone tried building the stops back up with some weld then grinding them to the correct specs? Or any other fix? Or am I looking at new axle sections and spindles?

Since I know the stops are worn, I can ease into my turns and use the brakes for sharp turns, but would prefer to not have the occasional tire layover and steering wheel snap when I hit small obstructions. Any thoughts?

What likely happened is a previous owner let the thrust bearings go completely out and that will wear off those stops.
If you are even a mediocre welder you should be able to weld them back up as good as new.
Those axle knees are cast steel so no special rod or preheat technique is needed. It is not in a structural part of the knee anyway. Just grab some 7018 or wire feed and have at it. You can also add some to the spindles too if it looks like that would be needed.

Thanks. Yup, a mediocre welder is about the right description for me! lol. I'll give it a shot.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
