Rear end troubles.

Ok so, my cars been out of commission for 6 months now. And I haven't really found a strong solution, I've gotten a lot of suggestions but no real answers. Basically there are a few reasons as to how or why this happened, but I am focused on how to fix it preferably diy. The sheet metal mount for the rear control arms has sheared under the bump stop and all the weds have broken around the edge of the mount on the right side, and as of now the right rear wheel moves in any direction it wants limited by the spring and struts. And I am interested in what is the best viable way to fix this mount or replace the sheet metal, while keeping the rear axel in-line. I have brought it to a shop here in my small town and he said there are kits available online but they are not cheap. But I've gotten ideas from welding the sheet metal back in place, thought I don't want to burn through or warp the unibody, and it won't be as solid of a fix, to getting aircraft rivets cutting from under the rear seat and riveting the newly section right mount and then same to the attached left side to reinforce it. Or I could cut the whole mount out and replace it with steel yet I don't exactly know how I would do that other than maybe putting bolts through with another steel plate on the back side so as to now ruin or tear through the sheet metal. So any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

The kits to weld over the existing mounts is about $80. Not too expensive. Find a shop that is decent with metal and they can rebuild the mounts. Reinforce all of them.

Google mustang battle box. That's the trade name for them. Find someone that will ship to you and you'll be good.
