It should be fine--make sure you run a few tacks--if you just use one or two, it can rotate on them and break the metal there. Stick, mig, tig, does not matter much.

Okay, then micron weld them.

If you put a good bead on it, no matter mig or tig, it will not be the weld that will break on you.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

I usually put 3-4 one inch long welds on them...they will not fall off but you can still cut them off relatively easily if needed...for instance if you damage the diff guard or blow a diff and hole the cover below the diff guard.
