Big problem!!

K so I Own a 99 gt mustang and I brought it to a shop after drivin over a rock wich wasn't large, but it clipped my suspension and then my mechanic said I was a manufacturing faulty weld that broke on the main supporting plate under the chassis but is connected to the suspenion

---------- Post added at 06:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:39 PM ----------

But anywas he showed me it and idk if I explains that right but he says he's beer had this problem and doesn't know if he can fix it but he'd have to take out exhaust and the axel to weld the plate that fractured ad then reinforce it. But my question is can I go back to ford and have it replaced or is it too old?

Yeah that's what I was told but. Is that even fixable or safe, cause my mechanic still doesn't know if he can fix it

What exactly broke/cracked? The cross member, sub-frames? Post a picture if possible.

Re: Big problem!!

You can fix anything, but if your mechanic is scared I wouldn't let him do it. I am not really sure what is broken, but it can be fixed. Just might take a little more work, or metal than he wants to put into it. People who realllly know how to weld can make them stronger than the metal around them.

I can weld exhaust and things that don't kill me if they fail, sounds like your mechanic is on this level. I would find out exactly what has failed and have someone reputable fix the problem.
