Bilstein Shock Broken at Weld

Like the title says.. This happened to me on the way to work. The new one is on the way, hopefully by Friday. The downside is I need my truck to get back and fourth to work. Any issues with not having a shock?Bilstein Shock Broken at Weld-imageuploadedbyag-free1395096093.543406.jpg

warranty or out of pocket ? I would have welded it if it was on my dime

Lol yeah I am not sure but everything I have read it says to just go with the way the writing is. I have no idea why it broke, the roads around here are bad but not that bad. I am going to try and weld the broken part back to the shock so I can at least have a spare one.

Ohh I see I thought the Bilstein sticker was upside down

I read the same thing about orientation when I had them on my GM

I would totally weld that push out the bushing weld it fast and have some water close to cool it off it shouldn't be an issue
