This was about to cause some serious damage. So now I've got a pretty crummy welding job that is not going to last very long. So my question is, could having giant shackles cause this? Or was this more of a rust issue, because my frame is pretty rusted out. And can I get new mounts or would it be better to just get a new frame all together?
That's like asking......"which candy bar caused me to have cavities"?
Serious rust + tall shackles = excellent formula for issues.
You are being vague & didn't post quality pics - so answering your solution question with a decent answer would be a guessing game at best.
Is that what you wish folks to do?
