Chevy shocks

Yes thanks,
I'm aware of how the lip fits. Seems as though the person who put the shocks on wasn't. I got my car about 80% done and the rest for me to piece back together. They put the mount on just with the small stud holding it all. It lasted about 150 miles and both have broken off. The design itself looks weak, and the parts houses say they sell these 3-4 at a time to car owners. I am thinking of welding the tip back with some re-enforcement on the arm end. That means I have to remove the stud and through bolt them in place. I am just shopping for ideas and experience from other builders like yourself. Thanks.
