    Has anyone else ran into this problem? The passenger side dual shock mount on the axle broke off completely. This is not the first time, it also broke on my 1/2 ton axle. A simple weld cures the problem but what is a permanent fix?

    Thanks

    Get rid of the factory lower mounts and weld on some confer mounts instead. The confer mounts are much thicker than the factory ones and there are 3 pieces to them so there is a steel plate on both sides of both shocks.
