Upper shock mount...?

Hey fellas need a hand. One of my rear upper shock mounts has gone AWOL. Lift is 4" skyjacker, it was installed in 2002. I can't seem to find a replacement online... Anyone know where I can find one? Does this look like a normal part or something the off road shop fabricated? See below for a picture of the shock mount that's still there. I need another one of these brackets.

My jeep is squirly as hell with only one rear shock! Haha...

I don't know if you can buy them individually, but mine came as part of the new shocks I just installed. I bet if you check at a parts store and ask to see a shock for your jeep it will be on one end.

I'm sure u know this, but shock purchase includes the mount attached to the new shock. Two bolts thru shock mounts into frame welded nutserts. I bought 4" lift Bilstein 5100 gas shocks and install. Pricey but excelleent.

Nope, didn't know that actually. Never have had a vehicle long enough to have to replace shocks, haha. But thanks!

The bar pin is part of the shock not the Jeep , you can probably figure out the remedy now I bet .

Went to my local 4 Wheel Parts and the guys gave me several bar pins and new bolts for free. After some grunting, several curse words, and a smashed finger, I got the bushing shoved back in there and got it put all back together. Relief at last!!!

Lol, goes in pretty easy with a little grease, at least compared to pushing it in without it.

Use alcohol.... not grease, grease will help the rubber pop right out out, when you want it to stay. Alcohol will dry up after helping it slip in. Alcohol does that ya know
