That's basically what I did, minus the threading the hole.

CJ7-Tim Cut and grind the stud flush and smooth, drill through, and install a suitable bolt, or cut off the entire bracket and install a replacement. I have done both.

Broken rear shock bolt. Not the usual.

I've broken many rear upper shock bolts on several of my Jeeps. That goes without saying. Today when removing my old shocks to install a different brand, the LOWER shock bolt/stud snapped off without much pressure at all. I couldn't believe it. Anybody ever had this happen or have any ideas on how to fix it? I'm thinking I could use a grinder to cut off the stuff, but not sure I'd be able to drill through the back to install a regular bolt. It broke off right where the threads begin. The smooth part to slide the shock on is still intact. Thanks.
