upper shock mounts

how much does it cost to have new upper shock mounts done in the rear? I don't know how to weld so I will have to have it done. I am feeling like this is going to sting. They arnt gone yet but with soon.

Thanks!

I'm sure there are many shops capable of doing the job. Elias 4x4 in Townsend, MA specializes in Jeeps and 4x4s. Keep in mind that most shops are in the business of turning a profit otherwise they would not remain in business.

As mentioned by Anticanman, most clubs have members who are fully capable of performing the repair. In fact most clubs host "tech days" where members gather to fix their Jeeps. Go here for a list of clubs in your area:

P.S. Don't be surprised if the upper shock mounts are only the tip of the iceberg. How closely have you inspected the rest of the frame?
