Rear Shock Mounts

My driver side rear shock mount snapped in half (apparently a common issue from some pictures I found on the web.) What fixes have you guys done to correct this problem? On my scrambler I have the shock mounted to the spring pad, something like this one.

Do they make these for the rear? What other solutions are there?

Thanks in advance.

Buy some tabs weld them to the axle and free up some clearance

Thanks for the info. I was hoping to find something I didn't have to weld but it appears that may be my only choice.

What I've seen done was just use the front ones off a yj and widen the holes for the rear u bolts
