2000 wrangler upper shock mounts

I have recently purchased a wrangler and after my maiden voiage I realized that the upper shock bolts were broken off. Uppon further inspection I noticed someone had already replaced the bolts with smaller grade 2 bolts... my question is what kinda structural damage would I be doing if I cut an access hole to be able to cut the old nuts off and weld new nuts to the shock mounts or should I remove the body and make tye repair that way

Loosen up the body mounts. Jack up the tub. Knock the old nuts off. Put bolts in from the top. No welding access required.

Good idea with the bolts down thru... you think they should be at least tack welded for future shock replacement or can a wrench be snuck in there to tighten them up... dont think the tub should be raised every time the shocks are replaced
