what kind of steel is it? high carbon? or is it mild or something? cause ive bent some 1/4 pretty easy, especially when it has as much leverage as it would have if your tire hit somthin

Regarding that front axle beam- you'd actually be better off with square tube. The flat bar may tend to flex, and will be much more likely to bend with any kind of impact. I think you're better off to rebuild it (even though you did do a very nice job with that one). If not, then maybe consider welding some square or angle along it's length to add rigidity.

I also note the center pivot hole. Are you going to allow that axle to pivot? Might make for some scary handling at speed.

Which model CVT are you using, and how are you bringing the power from there to the rear axle?

for the front end I plan on leveling it and drilling some holes and bolting it so I can remove it if I need to I don't want to weld it I don't like the idea.

All of our tractors run pivot front axles, that hasn't been a problem at speed. They are limited in travel.
