Ouch, this surely ruins the day and I hope you can get it fixed without breaking the bank.
You may want to keep a close eye on the tires on that side from now on.

True, nor does my unlimited supply of gorilla tape.

Iím not against buying chain and trying to tie it up- but I need to figure out wtf that really means.

Fortunately, different memberships should cover the service visit and fix cost. The bigger problem is Iím stuck because itís Sunday. Canít find someone to come to me.

The spring mounts are welded to the frame and part of it busted off. I donít know the first thing to getting it resolved on my own.

Sorry, man! Yeah, this is not a DIY project. They have to get the weight off and then they probably can't weld it right back to the same broken spot. They may have to weld on a good strong backing plate to attach it to. Good luck!
