Broken Lower Trackbar Mount

I'm looking for some pointers. I noticed that my track bar mount on the axle end is cracking. Its starting to seperate completely from the axle. When I turn the wheel the metal twists. I dont feel safe driving it on the street. I dont think welding a crack would hold for very long. At least not with the abuse that wheeling it causes.

Does anybody have any idea on how to fix this? Does somebody sell a lower trackbar mount that I could weld onto my D30? I already have the RE1660 trackbar and would like to keep it.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Brian

Weld it up and then reinforce it with some 3/16" plate!

I thought about this, but as worried it might be tricky to get inside the mount with a welder. I suppose reinforcing it would be the best way to go about it.
