#26926, "Upper arm broken off from frame?"


          

Ok, so I've sustained some track damage to one of my upper suspension arms. The parts (#40336, 40395B) at the top of the pic have broken off from (or rather, punched into) the frame. The weld? has cracked, and while the bolt is still there, it just flops around.

How do I fix this? The obvious answer is to just weld the bolt #40336 to the frame, but there is something like RTV or foam weatherproofing on both the top and bottom of the bolt. That, combined with the hard-to-reach location, is going to make it really hard to get a good weld on it.

Should I take the bolt out and weld the frame back square, or is this bolt welded in already?



Thanks!
