Is there something I am not doing right?I have replaced the rack two times but the right rack mount keeps breaking. Replaced strut and spring on that side as well. The cause of the first rack mount breaking was a nasty pothole at about 50 mph. Anyway thanks.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning.

Can you upload a picture of the rack where the break is located?

Also. Could the sub-frame be causing this rack mount to break?

That is my guess. I think you damaged the sub-frame and the rack is under too much stress and breaking the mount.
