I had exactly the same issue about 4 months ago. My rust was not as widespread as yours, same place though. I patched mine with a single plate - no rail damage. Thanks for the info!

If your control arm is bad just replace it, they are still around new. If your talking about the mounting location then well...I had that issue, not a bad fix for my mechanic.

The mounting location is cracked on many cars. Once mine broke my mecahnic has been busy fixing many other cars since.
