Best place for a rear shocks / studs job near San Diego

Hey all, I blew out my rear shocks and mangled one of the mounts pretty good out at Lake Mead last week. Guy near Vegas suggested cutting out the old section and putting in new studs before replacing the shocks. Said a weld fix on the current structure would just break again. Figured he was probably giving it to me straight since he knew I wasn't getting the work done there...

Anyway, getting a second opinion from the guys at Off-Road Warehouse tomorrow, but thought I'd check with you all to see if there's a better place to go, get work done, etc.

Haven't lived in SoCal for long and they're right near me so that was my first stop. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if anybody knows ballpark what that kind of job might run me, should I decide to cut out/rebuild the upper mounts, that would be helpful. Thanks, as always!

Yes, our Wrangler is named after a Cherokee... The original "Rokee" was a 1997 Cherokee Country. It solidified Jeep's permanent spot in our family.
