Default shocks!

Anybody ever convert the stud Mount in the Front of an xj to the standard bolt Mount? Thinking of doing this and running Gabriel monotubes for the rear of a 00 silverado.

Yes. I did.

I cut some square tubing after drilling a holes for the shock mount.

I ended up welding them to keep them from moving. I ran JK rubi shocks though.
