    I just bought a 91 k5. One of the rear shock mounts has broken off. Any body got any ideas, or something that someone else has done, on how to set up some new mounts? Pics would be good. Thanks. -Shane

    Is it broken at the axle or the frame? If the frame, which side?

    I had the same happen on my 83K5, I removed the shocks, ground out the holes (they were elongated from damage) and welded in new steel plates with the appropriate size drilled holes. It looks stock and should be plenty strong enough.
