Frame issues

I need a very inexpensive fix for some frame rot issues. The notorious steering box/ track bar frame crack and the other notorious RR shackle mount rotted holes issue. I have found and but don't have 100 to 150 to spend1 I was gunna just cut out the area because it was only two 5/16 of an inch gaps but after alittle air gun blowing on the insides revealed much extensive holes one about 1 1/2 plus inches wide the only solid for the most part peice of frame is the top and the bumper crossmember were it attaches to the frame on that side is rotted out the the whole inside size of the frame and I don't wanna just go cutting and welding and have the shackle tweaked or the frame way off

No easy fix! Just save your $$$ and do it right.

That's what I figured I recommended everyone this Christmas to gift me pre paid credit cards or cash for parts cause no one wants to purchase or can afford to purchase specific parts but thanks I would rather do it right the first time like you suggested
