body mounts

My 85 monte's got some rot around the body mount just behind the drivers rear wheel. It's so bad that body to frame bolt rusted away completely, but strangely, all other body mounts are in VERY good shape.
What should i do; get a new soft rubber factory body mount, get a set of those "hard" poly ones, hockey pucks, ect......?
Either way, I know I'm gonna have to lift the body off the frame to do any kind of repair work.
Is it possible (see: "a good idea") to weld the body directly to the frame?

Do not weld the body to the frame.... not "a good idea".
Just get a new rubber mount from a dealer. They're not expensive and replace the one that's bad. The hard poly mounts just make the ride harsher.

Better check your frame out. They are known to rot also in those years,(79-87), especially behind the rear wheel area.
