Default Hit a bump

Was moving my 99 workhorse a bit too fast

Hit a bump too hard and broke the bracket that holds the spring to the rear axle, on the right hand side.

Found a tree branch and was able to stick it under the bed and hold the cart up. At this point I was within 1/2 inch of normal. Found some barbwire on a fence that wasn't needed, and wrapped the springs to the axle with the help of my vice grips. Was able to drive home, though I went a lot slower and tried missing all the bumps.

Got the top part of the bracket off, but I'll probably have to cut the U bolts to get everything off.

I have a 78 EZGO electric in the barn. Will the rear spring bracket from that cart fit the workhorse, or will I need to buy a new one?

Thanks for any help.

Local dealer had one, $18 and the barbwire is not needed anymore.

Thought for sure a dealer would want $40 or so since they kind of had you. Was glad to find out only $18.
