    Spiritomb is better off in the lead slot.

    I actually think Weavile is better with Life Orb or Choice Band. Since Rock and Steel Pokemon tend to be heavy, Low Kick is better over over Brick Break. You can also consider Ice Shard.

      i wasn't sure about Choice Band or Life Orb, seeing as the former limits Weavile to 1 attack and the latter causes so much recoil, but of the two i think that Choice Band is the one i will go with. Ice Shard probably is a better choice than Ice Punch due to its priority, so i think that is what i will go with. thanks for the advice!
