track bar bracket broke...

so my jeep all of a sudden felt like i was floating when driving. thought it was the steering and i checked it out to find my steerin was overdue for a replacement as it was banged up. so i purchased a rusty system and installed it. no more cracking sounds comin from steerin when driven but it still floated....

turns out i noticed my track bar bottom bracket where is conects to the axle housing had snapped off?

Track bar brackets in general are a problem.

trac bar does not let it operate right as it makes the axle go up in down in a radius, while when triangulated it is straght up and down... vetter articulation and on road manners.
