I think the broken ear was caused by the bolts getting loose and allowing the whole assembly to flex too much. You might want to the axle to make sure it's good and snug in the fork lowers, if there's any looseness ther it'll put an extra strain on the brace.

Hey Will, I have an extra brace if you want it. You would need the old bolts.

It was cracked in wreck a few months ago. Took a little time to break off.

I've heard of the stock brace cracking on the 12s, but in your case Exavid is probably right.

If those bolts were loose, you might want to check all the rest of them on the forks and wheel. Don't forget those pesky fender bolts.
