So i drive a 98 cherokee with 4 inch lift, 31" goodyear mtr's, and warn front and rear bumoers. The other week i hit a deer, knocking it down and ran it on the right side with the tires doing maybe 35 mph. Afterwards i noticed a ratteling sound. I look under and the bracket that is welded to the body and frame that my shocks mount to, has broken the welds on the right side and needs to be replaced. It is my everyday driver that i take out on weekends and need to get it fixed fast. Any one out there have this probelm h appen to them and what did u do to fix it?

i cant weld it back on because only the one side broke and split it in half. My brothers a mechanic and he had an offroad guy look at it and since its also an everyday driver it has to be replaced me rewelded. But its the top mount, the one thats welded to the body and the frame

you might not be able to weld every crack but you can fill em all .

im sure you can coax it back into place or cut it out and weld in some 1" flat bar or something .
