Default rear shock mounts

I broke my rear shock mounts and it lead to my shocks breaking too..no big deal, but having some trouble finding replacement mounts..any ideas or should I have some fabricated? I found some heavier duty ones for $80 and the company made it sound like these mounts breaking is a common problem, so I would like something strong.

There's a guy that makes better stronger mounts and sells them on eBay for around $60 or $70 a pair. They worked awesomely on my 98. His company name is Karnage Offroad or something like that.

If it's the upper bolts, Karnage has a kit to fix it.

If it's the lower stud, I've cut the weld holding it to the diff bracket and installed a bolt in shock mount.

For the lower mount ive always just made them out of square tubing and a bolt.. for the upper mounts, you can really only break the bolts. Just punch them out and run new bolts.

Please post some pics of your ebay mount installation.
