    How do you guys like my new rear shocks ? Once again, there are none. This time I got the correct shocks I needed but the a$$hole I bought the Blazer from welded the top shock mount in place so I can't put them on. Now I have to try and grind them off and knock the other portion through. Is there another way or is that it ? I can't use the old existing mount because they're too short....I tried. No good.

    A cutting torch might solve your problem. Is the mount above the gas tank on the drivers side? That one is hell to get the stock shock off of when they are rusted.
