it might be able to be re-welded, iirc, the one that i saw was replaced and the replacement was reinforced... Getting the clearance perfect to really fit that bushing in will be difficult and then to get it even all the way across. it might be worth a shot. probbly more expensive than my subframe though. maybe not, i dunno.
