Default Fabricating Axle Pivot Drop Brackets?

I was wondering has anyone on this fourm ever machined/fabricated their own Axle Pivot Drop Brackets for a 94 Ford Ranger? If so how thick of material did they use for the drop brackets? I'm currently in the process of obtaining a Precision Tool&Die Degree, and I have access to a cnc, lathe, and welder, and cutting torches. I'm not short changed on any tools, or being able to acess them.
