1998 4runner has rusty frame

1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV
I just discovered the frame on my 4-runner is rusty just like the Tacoma's.
It is rusted on the drivers side rear wheel where the leaf spring "A" bracket is welded to the frame.
The bracket is structurally sound but the frame, not so much.
Serious safety issue!
Emailed Toyota a week ago and my email has been pushed to management review.
The frame is the same frame as the Tacoma and it has the same results but no one else seems to be bringing this issue up.
Please examine your vehicles as this is a potentially deadly situation.
Everything except the clock and antenna issue.
Build a frame that can withstand road salt.
Build a quality product with adequate corrosion protection so you don't have these issues.
Cutting corners only hurts everyone in the end.
