I had the same problem and bolted a ford F250 shock mount and cut it to size.
Been holding strong on and off road

i broke mine on the axle too, what i did was take it off clean it up real good, both sides, put it back on the shock and tack the broken peice.then remove the shock and finish weld it. being careful not to get it too hot and warp it as the shock wont fit. it would also be helpful if you could get it up on a lift. hasnt broke yet.
