    Ok looking under the blazer and I see a new crack.....Hum the sway bar bracket that is with the eng. crossmember is split..(that will teach me to wheel with it on)
    So my ??? is the bracket just for holding the sway bar on or does it tie into the eng crossmember....

    I.E I am going to ditch the sway bar this weekend and if I just leave the bracket cracked it will be ok or should I weld it up.....

    I think your talking about the u shaped piece with the 2 bolts holding it on with a rubber bushing there are 2 of these right you can ditch them with the sway bar, they don't affect the crossmember at all.
