Help, Rear upper link snapped on axle housing

I cant seem to find any info on this happening to anyone with a 4th gen. no parts available that I can find online, I don't know if someone knows of anyone that makes replacement parts that could be used for this or if its needed to be made from scratch. Ive looked at FJ 8 and 8.2 rears with e lockers and that would be the best bet if they weren't an arm and leg.

Im located in Phila but move to AZ in a couple weeks

Has anyone seen this happen or have any insight?

I tried finding universal mounts but feel like having someone fab something would be better

Seems strange why the bracket would break and not the thin upper link.

The cheapest fix will be to take it to a fabrication/weld shop and have them weld it back on with some added plating or bracing. As long as it's not rusted through entirely.

Wow, that's an odd spot to break. Did you come down hard on something like drop the wheel wheel off a ledge? As mentioned, unless it's rusted have it welded for now. It doesn't look rusted in the pics though.
