Bent stabilizer

I bent the front stabilizer arm. I was trying to stabilize the front on un-even ground and the front right stabilizer bent almost in half. Can you replace the arm or do I have to replace the whole electric stabilizer?? I can't find anybody that sells just the arm?? Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance. KJ

I bent one on the rear of my trailer a couple of years ago and was told by the manufacturer that they did not sell parts that I had to buy the entire unit. I wound up removing the stabilizer mechanism from the trailer and took it to a welding shop. The guy there was able to heat and straighten the arm. Cost me $80 bucks for the repair as opposed to a couple of hundred or more.

Thanks

Thanks guys, I appreciate the responses. Yes, gball I was afraid of that. However, great idea and I would rather spend $80.00 than 299.00 for a new one. I will try that.

Thanks mark5w. I did check out the website. I should have been more specific. Its a Ultra light front Electric Stabilizer jack with spacer by Lippert Components Inc. Model # 198641. I checked out there website and it looks like they only sell the whole unit, no parts?? I will probably go with gballs advise and find a welder. Thanks again..
