Front shocks 51 Styleline

Anyone familiar with the proper installation of front shock lower mounts on 49-54 Chevy? Also, has anyone successfully modified the mount as they are really thin around the locking bolt and snap off pretty easily? I am thinking of driving out the locking stud to replace with a bolt, and the reinforce the flimsy edge of the shock retainer. Do these retainers bottom out under the a-arm, or slip over it to have resistance against downward pressure on the front of the car?
