Mopar upper shock mounts really aren't built and aren't strong enough to support the car. A common failure if you use air shocks.

True, but still won't cause the car to sag.... unless we're talking about a leaf spring mount here

Tell you what since your beautiful car is now damaged beyond reasonable repair. I am generously willing to give you 2000 bucks for it. Sounds fair right? Lol great looking car man hope nothing to hard to repair.
