rear shock braket broken

The rear shock bracket on the rear diff. broke in half today. Is their an alternative solution to repairing it besides attempting to weld it back together?

any suggestions are appreciated

Same thing happened to me. You can either reweld it and stiffen it with some plate or flatbar, or fab up a new one or two and move them to the top of the rear axle to get them up out of the way.

i bought the warrior ones off q-tec very nice and cheap. Only $20 or so. Welded them on myself and saved a bunch. Mine ripped off because my shocks were too short when the axle dropped lol.

Agreed - and I think the warrior ones sit inside the footprint of the OEM brackets if I remember correctly..grind down the old ones, and weld the new ones in.
