Default Question about wall thickness

Im having upper a arm fabbed using 1.5" uniballs. Also having an adapter fabbed to accept the uniball and bolt directly to my spindle. What would be the safest turn down thinness I can get away with but still be in the clear for any kind of failure. And also for the tapered sleeve that goes into the spindle, same scenario, Itll be dropped into spindle and bolted with a F911 5/8ths fine thread.

Looking at the photo for are marked 1, where that will be the sleeve that drops into spindle, what do you think the minimum thickness I should have there? For area marked 2, where the misalignment angle comes in, what should be the minimum thickness I should have between end point and the bore down the center? Thank you

Guessing going with 4130

I think we need more pictures and more info. Are you talking about fabricated upper and lower control arms? What do the spindles actually look like? What are you actually talking about thinning down? The socket the uniball fits in? Or the Uniball itself? I'm not clear on exactly what you're trying to accomplish...

Mugen, sorry to drop in on your first post but we use attachments only, uploaded to our server, no embedded images.

This is mainly because we like the pictures to stay in the threads rather than disappearing when people casually edit their hosting pages, etc.

Keith I apologize for my vagueness.

First photo is the spindle, showing how the joint looks going into it ( not correct joint, but very similar ).

Second photo shows the adapter as a whole, how it is put together.

Third photo hopefully better explains exactly where I am asking what.

Edit: Tubing is 4130. Piece is a section of round tube that will be turned down on a lathe

Kinda depends on what it goes on. A prius would be different than a kenworth.
