I have a 1981 380sl with 135,000 miles on it. I am the 3rd owner, and know this car has been driven very easy all its life. The last time out, it seems the lower control arm broke free of its mount. Is this something that needs to be re-welded? at a frame shop to fix it? is this typical? I dont think I have seen a mounting break off the frame before.<br>
Thanks for the info.<br>

It is very unusual for this to happen, unless the pin bolts came loose and one of the brackets snapped. Repairs are not advised by welding. Replace lower arm bolts and bushes.
