Sheered Track Bar... What's Now?
I have a 2004 Ford F-250. Shortly before ending a 600 mile road trip I noticed some steering and stability problems with the truck. I pulled over and examined the suspension and found that the track bar was completely sheered from the axle assembly on the passenger side. This piece looks to be fabricated to the axle assembly close to where the U-bolts meet the axle.
What's next? Can I weld it back together or do I need to replace the axle? Would welding it just be a temporary fix? Finally, if I were to have the axle assembly replaced would that affect the resale value of the truck?
