The nut that holds the bolt on the passenger side lower front of the control arm broke loose. Result is terrible tread wear such that after 3 weeks I need new front tires! Has anyone ever repaired this nut by welding back to frame/body or other method. No one will do a wheel alignment until fixed.

You can reweld the old insert; in place or get a new nut.

Those are really problematic. Up north here rust takes it’s toll. I had to cut a small door in my subframe to reattach that nut. Then weld the door closed.
