Default 1996 Ranger spring shackle mount broken

Rear driverside forward spring mount came free from frame... Curious is there anywhere on the east side that anyone could recomend to fix this? I have no access to garage or welder personally. Its my beater and just used to save gas money kinda looking for cheap quick fix...


THanks...

There really isn't a "quick" fix. It's kinda an integral part of the suspension.

It's a Ford Dealer only part or LMC part (link posted), luckily your's is the $27 dollar for both sides one.

Here is the link of the reinstall tips:

You might want to look into just replacing the bushings on the spring as well, you'll probably destroy them getting the bolt out.

I'd dedicate a good weekend to it just to be safe and depending on the tools/experience you have..

Was getting dark when I looked at it glad to hear its a bolt on thing and there is a replace ment part. I am going to look into the parts and see if I can get away with doing it in my drive way...

Thanks for the info...
