 What is the list’s advice regarding

 It requires removing the rear axle to
 repair - a chore I would like to avoid.

I would think that with normal "putzing around" driving that the panhard rod would be very lightly loaded... With good front bushings in the leaf-springs
and the short shackles on the rear of the leaf-springs there would not be a lot of lateral flex in the rear axle ..

What I would question is WHY the bracket broke off ...Rust/Rot or improper panhard rod adjustment ..Broken main leaf ?
