Broken lower stabilizer link pin
On our 2008 EB 350 SMB ( Charlie and Dina Sikes' ex-SMB) it was pointed out by someone checking it out that I had a dangling stabilizer link as the lower pin attached to the ear on the axle tube had broken. I can see why it could fail (pin in single shear with heat affected zone on end where welded) I have obtained a replacement pin, actually a modified grade 8 bolt, from SMB in order to repair. But I am curious how predominent this failure mode is. Have others encountered the same failure?
