    My left rear mount on the K5 frame is cracked. Is there an easy upgrade fix, or should I just weld it?

    But if it looks like they might fail again, its not hard to cut some new ones out of stock, grind the old ones off, and weld some new, bigger, better ones on.

    I've seen several photos of welded repairs with notes saying they didn't affect the flex or anything.
