    Also, drill a hole through the ends of the cracks to stop them growing before you weld any repairs.

    Crack before:

    i actually had the same problem but it was drivers side
    basically my mate mig welded the crack up for me and he also welded up a braceing plate of steel to strenthin it, just a peice of 3mm sheet metal around the side of the mounting postion and welded to the floor and mounting position. stronger than factory
    works great havent had a problem since!

    On mine today, I found the mount hadn't cracked but the spot welds had come loose. I MIGed it in place. Just a few small welds, no brace.
