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.
Better still, do a write-up .
