88 Comanche lower control arm mount.

Mine broke, I have someone that will weld it, but I need to get the part.

The Jeep is original, nothing modified. I'm confused when I read about bolts and angles. All I want is basic OEM replacement. Does anyone have a recommendation what is the basic OEM and where I can get it for the best price.

Also, what causes it to break, do I have more problems than just the mount breaking off. It's only used for normal driving. thanks. wendy

Is it the Lower Control Arm (LCA) mounts on the body or the axle?

They usually rust and break off at the welds. It happens and without pictures it would be hard to explain exactly why your Jeep broke.

Iron Rock Off Road sells a heavy duty basic mount for $40.

If your Jeep requires adjustable cam bolts then get the more expensive Rusty's Offroad version. This will be easy to figure out since the cam bolt lower mounts have a slot instead of a single hole.

I'm new so can't post pics, but there's an upload images, so I'll try, but it was pretty rusty and looks paper thin. I got one and it's supposed to get fixed Tuesday.

It looks like the one from Rusty's with that extra piece on the side. I don't know if it requires or has adjustable cam bolts, it's got the original whatever came on it back in 1988. I hope I got the right thing.

I went to AllPro Automotive in Lansing MI www.apalansing.com. Told the guy what I had, what happened, and that it was original what was busted so I'm trusting he gave me the right thing. Trusting the mechanic, who has a jeep, knows what he's doing and I figure worst case scenario the guy gets it on but not quite right and I have to drive it into Lansing and have this AllPro redo it.

Pics of my jeep can be seen here http://www.cardomain.com/ride/208790...e-regular-cab/
it had never been driven in the winter until I got is, so it's on it's 8th Michigan winter.

That is some cancerous rust. Even the shock perch has a hole in it! It is really not surprising this broke.
