So what are the thicknesses of steel people are using to beef up IRS suspension arms, strut towers and the like, I don't want to go too thin and waste my time but I don't want overkill.. I will be seam welding and the like.

Yes, it's a Ranger.
Xr4Ti, it is rwd and was made in Germany.

I use 1/8" for stuff like strut tops.
I have 16 and 18 gauge in hand for use on stuff like gussets, optional cage to shell stuff, and underbody protection.
