Too much torque on my Z1 swap?

So there I was, checking bolts on the engine mounts to see if anything came loose after my dune season and I see this! The extra support bracket that I welded to the cross member tore! I used 1/8" angle steel, guess that wasn't enough. The welds held, but the bracket did not. Even if I used heavier steel, I'd still have the same problem. Not only did the bracket tear, it pulled up on the cross member bending it! I'll have to take more pictures. But has anyone else had this problem who welded a support bracket to the front cross member?
