2020-02-27 - Reinforcement due to damage

Q.
We suffered a failure at Road Atlanta of our CV joint. This caused the output shaft pulling out of the diff and the subsequent thrashing of the CV Joint and output shaft caused our diff mount to fail on the differential. After removing the subframe we were able to bend the chassis mount back to mostly normal placement. We are worried about the metal fatigue and would like to reinforce this chassis mount. What are our options? Add metal close to original thickness?

A.
Repair the damage with like size material. Make a note in your car info book that the new material was to repair damage keep photos of the damage and the repair.
