So i started hearing a squeak/creek from the rear end last week. After a quick inspection, i found the frame where the rear drivers side shackle bolts on is rusting out.
Hoping to get some advise on the proper way to repair this. Should i simply cut out the old rust and get one of the pre-cut frame re-enforcement kits I've seen around here? This seems like the easiest method to me, but i've never done frame repairs before, so im pretty clueless.
I know one of the POs of this particular rig already patched the rear frame on both sides, and it looks like he did a good job. The rust thats plaguing her now is a couple inches behind the patch job.
Heres a visual, let me know if you need a better pic.
*In the picture you can kind of see the other spot of rust. About the size of a quarter on the bottom of the frame.
