Shock bracket busted

Soo while wheeling over the weekend I apparently broke a mount for the rear shock. Having issues however finding A part number, anyone know the correct nomenclature or part number for it?

Looks like you broke the t-bar for the shock. Can't tell from the pic what's still there.

Not my jeep but may help with the location im talking about. Its at the top of the shock, where that bar keeps it in place. The bracket is fine, its just the metal bar that it slides on that broke

i could be completely off base here, but if i recall correctly, the stock rear shocks just have a T at the top and they get bolted down into the frame (with the nuts tackwelded on)... is that a setup that was done for aftermarket shocks?

The bar pin broke off the shock itself.

I'm thinking a new t-bar and shock bushing will fix this.

Message sent. Yea T Bar seems to be it. Also learned that the shock itself was bad, so looking at this as a good thing somewhat. Friend I was with sort of laughed, said they've never seen a shock break off at that point before.

Its a good job, sucks being away from the wife and kid but gotta put food on the table. Jeeps been with me from Georgia, upstate new york, Tennessee, and to washington where i currently am and has done me nothing but proud. However the 1k one way ticket over to hawaii. AND from what I understand my rig has to abide by their local laws, instead of my states, as far as mud flaps and the like go.
