Shocked

And you're not the first one, Deuch'n'roll had this same problem... twice!

I think, too hard shock absorber and regular springs make too much work for the shock absorbers fixations. Don't you think?

I think so too, besides the welding on 2cv suspension arms is not as good as generally thought, for 4x4's the arms used to be rewelded to make them stonger.
annyway, you were right on time, finding this out.

i think it's only because of the hard shock absorber, because the spring is mounted on the same bracket. would’t it ?

If you look welding guality of arms this is not really suprise.
Weld them again and make some extra pieces to them to be good.
