Once welded in this should fix the issue for life.......oh and usually if one side goes your other side isn't too far behind. Insoect for cracks and if there is even a hairline I would replace both sides. It actually would be a good idea to do both sides anyway but I know it can be costly.

Thanks a lot Jon and Screamer

Well reinforcement plates go on the top of the shock tower correct? that area is fine, the problem is around the actual tower

im guessing a rear strut bar is all i need then...
