Rear shock help and all shocks w 8.8 rear

Just got 91 YJ SOA 2" BDS springs an 1" lift shackles. May ditch shackles but rear shock issue. The frame side mounts for them are off. Has 8.8 swap in rear so what do everyone do when swapped in. From 8.8 shock tabs to maybe highest point I measured may 16" curb height as it sits. Now I just need to find a spot to weld in these brackets he gave me that look like they go on top of frame rail and give me a stud mount. Anyone please get me picture of stock YJ frame side shock mount how it went please?

What shocks do y'all recommend. Isn't a beauty an don't wanna spend a ton but want a soft ride if I can. Thinking an read lot of good on Ranchos 9000 adjustables.

Steering damper to will anything be fine. Doesn't have on at all so thinking that's a must.
