Rear shock upper mount

I have tried to research and find a cost efficient way to relocate the rear upper shock mount because mine is destroyed. I do not have the money or resources to go outboard. I am just trying to find a way to mount my rear shock back up. Please someone help.

It looks like one of the holes for the bolt is damaged or broken off. You can weld a steel plate over it and drill new hole for the screw or just get a bar pin eliminator for the rear shocks. They are like $35 for pair. Then go to muffler shop and have them weld it to the frame. Then remount the rear shocks. Overall it should only cost you approximate $50 to fix it.

Yeah I already have the eliminator kit. I was thinking maybe they could just weld the kit to the frame, thank you for the reply. I'm just trying to see what options I have.

Drill out the broken bolt then get 2 nuts, bolts, and washers and tighten it up.
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line
