I saw many fixes on here,but not a simple safty strap.
Digging the idea of a safety strap lol. Go a bit further put a teinsoner bracket that ties into the upper and lower trailing arms. Would take a bit of fabrication to make one . Some where on this forum is a link to a pict of a nice set up that way , but darn if I can find it right now.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
