Broken rear trailing arm

Just wondering if it is common to brake the rear trailing / swing arms? Both tubes broke at the center section of the arm. I am not complaining, with over 20,000 HARD trail miles on it, I don’t mind a few issues. But like most things I order at the dealer, they say nobody has ever needed one before. The bad part was when I was repairing it, Only till the new one comes in, I noticed the bolt from my rear yolk to the rear diff input shaft is long gone and I have a massive amount of wear on the splines. After checking into the parts to freshen up the diff, I decided to just buy a complete diff and drive shaft. I guess I should have taken my loss and traded it in when I picked up my 16.
