Lower Control Arm Bracket Bent

The lower control arm brackets on my Armada are bent. I was surpised to see how thin the metal was on the brackets. Looking at replacing them like they do on Jeeps. Do they sale after market brackets for the Amada? Would it be better to straighten the old ones and add metal for additonal strength?

welcome to the Club.

Could you post up some pictures?! This is literally the FIRST time I've EVER heard of the lower control arm brackets being bent and we have quite a few members who heavily use their Armadas.

Do you know how they got bent?
