Is it possible that the rod/spring coming down from the spring support can be welded directly to the pipe in order to support it?

It is possible but not recommended. You would lose the flexibility of being able to adjust the spring support height or load capacity.

What is a j-rod on a pipe support?

When referring to constants, the j dimension refers to the diameter ofthe rod which transfers our load from the constant to the support component.(i.e. clamp, clevis, etc.)
