    Found Deal on RS5000\'s But Need Help w/ Shock Mounts

    Got the junk mail out the mailbox. Get this... Sears sell'n Rancho RS5000's for $9 a piece. That's $29 less than in the rags!!!

    Problem was, I went to see how many bushings I'd need and both front shock mounts are broke!

    Need insight from anyone who's done this one. Guess I got to get the air chisel out for the two studs then replace them with bolts and new shock mounts?

    Thanks for the help!

    Had to do the same thing about a year ago, I used a small grinder with a cutting wheel it is pretty painless to do.

    I hate to tell you this but one of the reasons your shock mounts are broken is because of shocks like the RS 5000. There alittle stiff.
