Im looking for a Front Axle Housing for 93 YJ

I am looking for a reasonably priced front axle housing for a 93 YJ. I have a bent support on mine on the right front. It's the bracket that the ball joints mount in and is causing my tire to lean in at the top.

If anyone has a suggestion on a safe and easy fix for my situation without replacing the axle housing, please feel free to share them with me. I am very mechanically inclined, just bought the jeep last week and am looking for people's advice that might have had a simular situation or has seen this before.

have you tried new ball joints and double checking your alignment?

if those are both good and your C is bent you need a new housing

No, I have not checked the ball joints, they seem to be in good shape. I can see that the C on the axle is bent. Where is a good place to find a decently price axle that won't kill you on shipping?

in looking at the photo i can't see anything out of the norm. i would go an aligment and double check to make sure your ball joints are not shot before hunting down an dana 30. if you can weld good cheep option is to get a front axle out of a 96+ XJ cut the brackets off and mount spring perches

any junk yard should have a YJ or XJ dana 30

Thanks for the info. I'm going to check the ball joints first, hopefully thats all it needs. If I have to then I will start calling junk yards.
