Rear lower shock mount

The rear passenger side lower shock mount went on my YJ. How would I go about fixing this? Do I have to weld it on? I've heard about lower shock mounts that bolt on to the rear axel but I don't know if those are any good or what.

It's up to you but I would get a new weld on one and fix it that way my preference.

Mine has broken before, I have never heard of bolt on ones, just grind off the old one, and weld on the new one. The part was only about 30 bones or so too.

Garage
you can weld on new brackets that are higher, then get the MORE shock relocator kit to raise the top higher so as not to loose any travel. That will gain you some clearance on the bottom. The MORE kit will still be used when you get the 8.8 eventually.
