Track bar sheared off at the weld. I feel like I’m cursed with my new JL

Before I put on a lift kit, I read about the welding issue of the Trackbar bracket, but I have no idea how to tell rather the weld on my JL is ok on not. Any suggestions?

That weld would fail inspection. Not the track bar which looks great, but the one above it. Hard to tell what that is.

The weld is too porous. It probably won't ever cause a problem but it is a shit weld.

Gave buying a new one a lot of thought. Unless I win lottery, going to keep my 2013 for at least three more years, either they will get better, or not, and that gives me time to figure out what to do. Really want the truck, but with all the issues of the JL, just not sure I want issues now.
