I'm pretty sure welding spring steel is a no no and search all your awnsers can be found

Putting spring steel on it is good because it will flex and not break. U prolly suck at welding.  Once the tags run out im driving it to the junkyard.  These cars rot away so easyily.  Good luck finding parts

Spring steel becomes very brittle after welding, and probably won't provide much in the way of reinforcement. Just go down to the local hardware store and pick up a steel bar to do the job.

I see the last post here is from last summer, but - anyone have a line on these control arms?

I've scoured the net with little success. Maybe i'm just NTFS. Here's what happened to my passenger side...
79 Celica 5spd ST vinyl roof - miss it!
87 2wd pickup 5spd - really small inside!
85 GTS coupe 5spd- refreshing/restoring
85 GT hatch 5spd- faster than my other celicas, no idea why
07 FJ Cruiser - best vehicle ever. Really. I miss it.
11 Scion tC - that stands for Toyota Celica, right?
