Repairable / replaceable?

Thought of taking to the local metalworks and build a new one....

Just fit another trailing arm, all th same other than on 16" syncros, even 2wd is the same

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Is the groove normal or is it because of the spring?

Groove is normal. Put there when made. This rust fracture is quite common and a lot of the time is not noticed till the spring pops half way out. The top bump stop normaly holds the spring in so it doesn't pop out completely. I have seen the top bump stop brake though.
It is quite easily repaired or replaced.
