Rear Swaybar

The swaybar broke where it welds to the axle. I tried to weld it back and even boxed it in, but now it is just bouncing around in the box. Does anyone have any ideas on getting this fixed? I't really is rough/loud/annoying.

The sway bar broke or the bracket that holds it to the frame, or the end links that go to the axle? Because your descriptions makes it sound like the sway bar is welded to the axle and doesn't make any sense.

Sounds like the bracket although a photo would help a lot. So, probably just needs to get a replacement bracket welded on regardless of stock or aftermarket IMO. Wondering if there was an extension bracket that placed additional force on the stock bracket...this does happen sometimes. Agn, OP a photo?

I'm almost thinking he is talking about the track bar?

There are a couple of good brand replacements when you do a search for jk trackbar bracket...have one welded on. Teraflex and Rubicon Express come to mind.

Any decent shop should be able to weld the trackbar bracket back onto the axle and with added metal, make it even stronger. Shouldn't take them more than an hour and shouldn't cost you more than $100.
