Sorry. My safety and health background is what drove me to the jack and jackstand comments. Dirt man gave good advice. Relying on my NDT materials failure background I would guess that the failure initiated from a loose bolt that wallowed out the hole to the point of failure. A periodic check of bolt torques wouldn't hurt. Prior to welding ensure that the HAZ is buffed to shiny metal. It would not hurt to back weld the brackets. Good luck.
