I'm freakin out

As u know, I slid off road & ended up w/a crack near the axle.........I have been concerned w/the way it drives so I went to LS yesturday & they said the crack was way worse. past the weld.
Well, a few min ago I went out to get some pics for the towing company & IT IS LEAKING!!!
I TRUST NO ONE!!! HELP!! LS said to have my friend weld it, but IDK not liking the fact that this was NEVER a issue till after he snapped the chain off in that area............please advise.

is it in the front or the rear? if it is cracked bad, then even if you weld it, it may continue cracking.

was a hole drilled at the end of the crack before it was welded? if it wasn't, it will continue to crack.

it was "supposed" to be just a weld to repair a crack. the weld is holding, but after new tires drag link,, alignment, I thought I wasn't used to the new tires, but it 'appears' that the crack is traveling & now its leaking. I will link pics in a minute. I was told originally that it was the Weld ONLY & didn't involve the axle..............I'm thinging everyone is WROONG!!!

does that pic help? I can go get more pics, trying to get a hold of the welder, the towing company, who btw IS DENYING it happened.
They want me to bring it to them today so the original guy could look at it, but it wasn't leaking when I left there. He is concerned that when they snapped the chain, THEN had me put on ER brake & keep my foot on brake while he drug it on truck, that it stressed something, but can't tell of course cuz I'm not there..............I don't need this...........it can't be cheap to fix..???


ANYONE HAVE A FREE PSD they would like to trade to a worthy cause
