Exclamation I need someone with a portable welder

Some how it appears I have either cracked or put a hole im my rear axle at the passanger sring perch. I am leaking fluid from the perch area.

Has anyone ever had this happen to them? Or anyone have any advice. i was thinking if the perch put a hole in the tube or a weld broke causing the leak re welding around the perch should fix it. If not its worth a shot.

I will remove the tire, spring pack and clean up the perch to weld around.

Does anyone have a portable welder that could swing by?

mig is good, try to keep the wind away from it or use flux core wire. If you want to drive up here I could do it but it's a long drive...

I can drop mine off. Do you have an available 220v outlet and/or a 30+amp 110V within 50'?
