Damn dude. That looks like it had hit that side HARD if it cracked that.

Even if that is the problem, get a second opinion on those ball joints. It could have wore them out from driving like that for a while.

I would but its going to take just as long maybe even longer to do that sense its riveted in not bolted and if i can beef this once up where it broke it will be stronger then a new one. If it broke before I don't know why it wouldn't break again, but I am keeping my options and openions open.
