I would use 1/8" plate steel, and make a patter from cardboard to weld along the
bottom of the arm. I would try an make it all out of one piece of steel, but maybe
drill some holes in it to make it lighter. Keep Maintenance in mind. You want to be
able to remove the ball joints, and get the shock/spring perch bolted on.
