yep, that's how I'd do it

I don't know if you're using square or round tubing for the subframe. I used square which made things easy. Don't have any pics handy right now.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-SUZUKI...QAAOSw2spbJcXd has some pics of a stock SV subframe, the lowers have pretty much what I speak of.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

planning on using round tubing for aesthetic purposes as quite a bit of it will be on show.

in terms of the slugs...are we talking simple solid round bar turned down to the inside diameter of the frame/subframe? Think I saw another post on here where the slug when in the frame/sub had a couple of holes drilled from the outside the frame/sub where the slug ended inside and welded. Is that belts and braces over just welding at the end of tube?

Yeah, that's what I did. Doing some holes for additional welds won't hurt.
