My driver's side rear shock tower has torn. Guess I should be a little less spirited, huh?
My mechanic says he can weld a plate on top with appropriate cutouts for screws, and that the tower will be stronger than it was when it came from the factory afterwards. Really frustrating though. I'm really lucky it didn't tear all the way.
Go to the dealer. There's a specific part number for the exact plate to weld onto the shock tower. Yeah that's right it's such a common problem the dealership has a part number for a plate to weld onto the tower
