    I'm having a hell of a time getting my drivers side rear shock mount (upper) off. I stripped the stud and cut it off mostly flat with a sawzall. I was hoping to punch it out the backside, but it's not coming through. Could I just drill a hole somewhere else and put the new shock mount in? If so, where?
