YJ Wrangler Rear Suspension Made Non-Functional from Poor Welding Job

Good friend Tom H. (Tom's Jeep Shop at Michigan) sent these two photos taken at a wrecking yard.  Rust is a scourge with the Midwest's salted roads, to the extent that even frames erode away...This "engineering" made the shackle rigid and eliminated any rear spring elongation or normal movement.  According to the rust, the YJ Wrangler operated on the road or a farm for several years in this condition.  Apparently, the goal was to keep a badly frame-damaged Jeep running.  The "ride"?  Imagine a buckboard!
