    So, as I'm removing rear shocks, I sheared one of the bolts off. It appears to be pressed in , not necessarily welded onto the plate. I see you can just buy the bolts, though I'm not sure how it can removed from the plate, question being, would y'all replace the entire plate(that has the bolt attached OEM style), or remove just the bolts and replace these?, if this in fact possible. Obviously it's cheaper to just replace the bolts, but I noticed some of the replacement plates just had holes for new bolts, and nuts included, not a welded in bolt(or maybe they are threaded in?, like on the original))
    The plates arent cheap, and would require more work. I want to do it correctly, but skip whole replacement if possible. Thanks for the knowledge sharing, Paul.

    You can place a "WTB" and get some viable original plates...
