UnlimitedLJ04 damaging the bracket off is common in areas with lots of rust, or with a lift & relocation bracket.

weld on a better bracket, or repair the damaged weld on the stock one and reinforce it to the axle tube.

Rear track rod broken - rare or common?

Jeep was handling poorly and had a knocking coming from under the rear while driving to work today. Climbed under and found the rear track rod had broken (weld) away from the rear diff. Is this a common TJ issue or rare?
Is there a fix to prevent it happening again or do I just weld (repair) what's there?
I appreciate any input here.
I hate repairing same thing more than once so anything that needs doing I would rather address it now and not need to worry about it happening again, maybe even on the trail.
