Default Broken Rear Shock Stud

Has anyone broken an upper rear shock mount stud? What did you do to fix it? It looks like the stud is spot welded in 2 places on the top side. Will I have to drill it out? Can I get to the top side from the truck or back seat? Need some ideas, PLEASE!

Mine was so frozen and locked in there, took the shop a really long time to get that out. Take it to a good shop, drop it off, expect to pay a little extra for the extra time.

I don't trust any one to touch my stuff. No one has come across this? I can't believe that.

Or get it to a shop & check them out when they work at your ride . A good machanic will do it .

Used some wd40 or something alike !

Use some heat , not too much in order not to damage anything .

well the only thing you can do at this point , you can DIY and drilled the studs out and nut and bolt it ( JUST TO DRIVE IT ) to a shop and have it welded in place.

unless you know how to use a mig welder
