95 yj rear shock mounts

My rear upper shock mounts are rusted out .. i have already replace and welded the passenger side.. the drive side has the fuel line filter in the way .. should i siphon our all the gas, take fuel filter out and have fuel pump bleed out rest of gas to weld ? What are my options ? Thank you !

I just loosened all the fuel lines from the frame and wedged them out of the way and wrapped / covered in welding cloth....

but you can just disconnect the filter and cap the lines , plastic wrap and tape and secure out of the way... the line from the tank, just raise higher than fuel level to keep gravity from drawing the fuel out.... extend that line if needed temporarily.

what he said, plus cover everything in water soaked towels to grab any sparks

I personally wouldn’t open any lines up.

Covered, sparks wont harm the exterior of lines and filter. But fuel vapors ( removing fuel filter) can still ignite.
I’d also cover the fuel tank with wet cotton toweling so spatter sparks can’t rest on top of fuel rank or anything like that.

I would do a body off frame restoration and an LS engine swap and make the shock mount one of the little details to take care of while it is apart.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.
