Fixing rusty frame

My YJ has rust around the rear spring rear shackle. Any ideas on the best way to fix this? Also if I weld some plates on the side of the frame it will space out the shackles further, Do I need different shackle bolts that are a little longer on the frame side?

You could cut out the bad steel and weld new material in place of the bad, thereby not "ading" to the overall width of the frame rail. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
