I just purchased a 2000 Jeep Wrangler and noticed that the control arm bracket on the driver's side sits at an angle, whereas the one on the passenger side is straight. I'm pretty sure the driver's side one is bent. I searched through the forum and it seems this isn't too difficult to replace if you know someone who can weld, which I do, but I wanted to get a second opinion.
Is this sucker bent? And if so, what should I replace it with? If this bracket is bent, what other things should I look for that could also be damaged?

Is the vehicle safe to drive in this condition?
