So I took my Astro in to get an alignment after putting in a new tie rod end and it turns out the whole upper control arm broke off. I'm really shocked because my Astro is in crazy good condition with almost no rust at all. I'm having it towed to a welder in two weeks, has anyone had success with welding new mounts/brackets for a control arm? Unfortunately I don't have pics right now
I would love to see exactly what broke; Control arms don't break off unless very over-stressed. Did the arm iself break, and had it been involved in an accident sometime in its life? Then I'd say faulty repair job, depending.
