I am wanting to truss the samurai axle housing, and add gussets to the knuckles.
I have already rebuilt the knuckles, packed with grease, etc......

Can I weld the truss and gussets on with the knuckles built and full of grease? Or will I be reaching for the fire extinguisher?

I would pull your knuckles off and do your welding, your packing grease will turn to just oil pretty quickly , generally it wont ever get hot enough to affect the inner seals but grease yes...

I also have SPOA spring perches and shock mounts to weld onto the axle tubes. Can someone please tell me how thick the samurai axle tubes are, so I can dial in the mig?

Thanks.

I think toyota housings are 3/16" so zuk's are probably the same or close... try googling it. I just follow the chart on my welder.
