sure you can weld a bolt to it but it may or may not hold - at times like these I opt in for an upgrade RE and others sell weld on shock mounts and since you have access to a welder it would be a good time to replace that mount.

Here is a simple kit and not too expensive

You also get 3" of clearance with them

Perfect time to add some much needed ground clearance. Cut the mounts off and remount so that the stud is even with the centerline of the axle tube.

That's what I did except that I used a stud and nut like the original. Worked out great, and it wasn't that big of a job.

No, those are are rear discs on a Dana44.

The brakes are off a mid 90's ZJ (D35). The swap cost me around $50

if you raise your shock mount you will have to remeasure to make sure your currents shocks dont bottom out. seen it done numerous times and then their current shocks are to long.........

Yes, but proper bumpstop length can eliminate this concern for some applications. Knowing the shock's compressed and extended lengths will help a lot.

this is true but I doubt half the people here use their bumpstops just trying to save the OP a headache thats all
