Hey guys. I’ve been on here for several repair questions but this one is the one in most worried about. My frame looks to be rusted out and when I turn the wheel of my car while I’m moving, I can hear a clanking noise. And when I go up into driveways I really hear the loud noise. I have a picture but I’m hoping I’m not the only one who has had this issue and if it’s fixable?? I’m taking it to a place where they re-weld and re-enforce frames but I’m worried that they may not be able to do anything....

This is on the drivers side. I only noticed this today but I heard it about 2 weeks ago. We had temps down to -13 and I was driving it a lot and it may of broke due to the cold temps. I’m just hoping this is fixable and not just a total waste of the car

Also, this is the cause of the sound. It’s not bad ball joints or anything cuz I just replaced those and the tie rods.

Everything is fixable, just depends on how much it's going to cost. I'm sure it will be worth fixing but see what they say structurally.
