jeep lj broken rear upper shock mount

Took it to a shop and they ruined the upper nuts just drilled through and put another nut on top of it. So how should I fix this. Would a nutsert work ?

Can't think of why what you have now isn't about the cheapest fix there is. Unless it's not fixed.

You already have quick, cost-effective, functional repair and those mounts are notorious for seizing up. If you want, you can take a Dremel with the stylus flexi thing and a tiny cut-off wheel and knock the welds off that hold the factory nuts to the top of the cross-member and then scratch some paint off, tack-weld new nuts on, prime and paint, and then coat the new bolts in anti-seize and re-install your shocks but it won't ride any different.

The shop used 4 different bolts rusted already. Looks like they just found some bolts around the shop and bolted them in really disappointed because it is $150 bill and the some inner fender clips and where the put a ratchet to put the nuts on to took the paint down to bare metal so it will rust.

drilling out the crappy stock weldnuts and inserting a longer bolt with a nut on the back is common practice. that's how i had to fix mine.
