Frame rot
 
Hey guys I have a 98 ram 1500 with the 5.2 and I heard it clunking on some left turns yesterday, it stopped but I decided to investigate anyways. And I found where the sway bar attaches to the frame it's pretty rotted, moreso on the passenger side where it's mostly gone and one side of it seems to have started pulling away. I just wanted to know is this something I can have fixed? I assume if that comes off it wouldn't be good.

Depending on how much has rusted, you could just have it cut out and some new metal welded in and painted. Ya you wouldn't want to be running around with no sway bar.

Thanks, it's mostly just where the sway bar connects and a few small holes on the side. My girlfriends uncle has a welding shop so we're going to bring it over this weekend.
