Default welding aluminum to steel

here's a question for your metal masters...

I have some steel fittings for my heater lines in my truck project. I need to use them because they are short drop 90s. (I can't find aluminum 90s with less than a 2" drop, and these are 1.5").

I planned on using 5/8" aluminum tubing for the lines with a short hose at the water pump and manifold for vibration.

My question is... can 5/8 aluminum tubing be welded/brazed/soldered to these steel fittings and provide a sturdy , leak proof connection ??

best procedure ?? material to use ?? etc..

thanks, John
