get a new one welded on, aftermarket ones at 50 bucks or so and are 3/16".

i may have an extra one in my garage i would sell you and could probably weld it on for you if needed. ill check to see if its drive side or passenger.

pretty sure its passenger though.

I've helped a coule of people with thiers. They ordered the RE ones, but they arlready had adjustable lower arms, so they could still adjust thier caster. The new HD ones will not have the cam adjustemnt in them. So just get some good ones and weld them on.

There's probably nothing wrong with the bushings. Just install these:

They're even slotted for the cam bolts to work. $47.99/pair

my garage.....I have only one set left for a 2.5 axle tube. I also have sets for 3 and 3 1/4" axle tubes. At a previous shop I worked at I made a mess of these, and thought they would sell like hotcakes Oh well :)

That is not an actual seal. It's supposed to keep debris out of the axle tubes. If you've got water in your diff then either the inner axle tube seals are leaking, the pinion seal is leaking, or it's getting in through the vent tube.

You do realize that bending that lca mount back is only a temporary fix. The metal is now fatigued. It will eventually bend again or worse rip. Even more so if you wheel it. As far as the water going into the tube ends make sure you also check the vent line did not fall off the back of the diff.
