Has the bush metal pin worn through the ca mount on the body?

It's obviously been flogged out for a long time to do that. You certainly keep us worried with all your woes you have with your poor old xj. You ought to get a job as a warranty bloke at jeep. They can give each new model to you for a month and see what breaks on it..lol... They can call the new jeep warranty...AG- Tried & tested.

Yerr it must have been like it for at least six months. Really wish I noticed it earlier because its going to be hard welding the groove back up. Spewin I can't load the pics as to really see what's going on pics are needed. The next thing will be to try and prevent it from happening again.

I'd be putting another arm in if you have one. That one is rooted.

So it's worn a groove on the body mount?. That can be touch welded, then get a 9" grinder on it to smooth it back so the arm won't rub on any rough spots.

If the groove is really bad you can get 1/16th steel plate and weld that onto the mount. Drill a hole for the bolt and spread the mount a little bit then refit the arm. The plate will act as a gusset and also a smooth surface for the arm to pivot on.
