broken sway bar bracket

on the rear where the sway bar links to the axle the part that is actually welded to the axle has broken. I welded it back and it just broke again. i tried to look the part up and its not listed as a servicable. I guess the only thing to do is try and fabricate one??? if you get a chance look at your and see how weak they are made!

Yes, and once they do break, they are even weaker. Did you have an extension bracket on it? If so, this places additional stress on the bracket and is a known issue. Their are reinforcement plates and brackets that can be added to gusset the original bracket if needed...suggested in your case.
