What broke? Shock mount bracket?

I thought I posted this. All well. Brought car to shop after noise. He said this is not worth repairing. It is a 1999 grand Cherokee. He said it is stabilizer link bracket but it looks like the shock mount bracket and.. it's just a mess. Opinions? Price for repair? What parts am I looking at in these pics? My mech savvy is limited to fixing stabilizer links and sway bars. This is right front. Thanks. I am in Massachusetts.

I cant tell from your pictures, they are too close up.

It looks like your brackets tore from the axle.

please post more info about your Jeep and pics from a little further away.

Looks like the track bar mount and everything else attached to it. Is the frame sitting on the axle? You might be able to get away with swapping axles (grab one from a junkyard) but honestly, if the rust is that bad, ditch the whole jeep.

Yea exactly... spring perch and trackbar bracket. Amazing that the coil is still there... Fused by rust? Yikes. It would be just a matter of time before the driver side ripped off too (although it has arguably less stress on it since there's no trackbar attached...). I agree. If the rest of the Jeep is that rusty, I wouldn't waste money on simply repairing the perch and mount, or even replacing the axle, which is the only other option really.
