Rear Control Arm mount

After doing John Bull with my sons on Sunday, I noticed that I flared out the passenger side, rear control arm mount. So has anyone come up with a solution for this problem? I know if you weld underneath the mount, you’ll lose flex for the rear of the control arm. If someone could post pictures of what they have done to solve the problem, I’d appreciate it.

Yeah, I'd be interested in hearing about this too. I put lower front control arm skids on mine thinkin' I was all bad now. Instead both my front and rear upper control arm brackets have taken a beating while those skids are still shiny with barely a scratch.

I just welded a couple of flat iron plates to mine and they work great. I'll post some pics tomorrow. As far as losing flex I don't understand how. Since the upward travel of the axel is limited these plates are not in the way.

My uppers have just lightly scratched, but my lowers are taking a beating.

Upper or lower? I assumed lower before, but may have been wrong.

Several people make them, but this guy is local for me.

If he was aiming down the sights correctly and had plenty of practice rounds under his belt, there would only be one side of this story.
