Greetings,

We have a '96 RAV4 and the right rear wheel trailing arm bracket has broken. This looks very bad (see pics) because the bracket is part of the frame. Fortunately, it came apart in our driveway and not on the highway!

Does anyone have any ideas about welding on a new bracket, or any type of "creative" welding repair?

I found this stock Toyota part (#15), which is listed as being for our model year.

We live on a 1 mile dirt road with a lot of potholes. My guess is that it failed due to a worn out bushing and the bracket metal being too thin by design, coupled with daily travel over the potholes. I'm also guessing that the worn out rear struts contributed to the failure.

thanks,
JC
