Broken trac arm bracket

Hit a pothole on hwy and heard bang, bar that connects frame to axle broke off at axle. Anyone had this problem and any suggestions on a good fix?

Your truck looks "leveled" or lifted, but that might be the picture. If it is, do you have an adjustable trac bar? If it is and you don't have the adjustable trac bar, it was most likely under more strain due to lift/leveling geometry. I'd just weld it back on and gusset it and make sure you have the appropriate trac bar.

leveling kit in front, lift bracket on arm seems to short so it seems like you said, under stress, track arm is stock, should i get aftermarket arm? Had it welded back together and added plate steel to both sides, know of any better fixes i would appreciate it.
