Default rear suspension find its way into your hatch?

a few months back i hit a pothole the size of texas it was terminal for my driverside rear shock this with a little pre exsisting rust from salty snow slush found its way up and throu the top mount (accessable throu the little access door just below the rear speakers i was left with no mounting surface so after some brainstorming i used a 5"x5"peice of 1/4 steel with a channel cut out of it for a base (under where it should mount )as this was big enough to grab the sturdier double ply area around where the original hole for mounting the rear shock would have been.then lowered the body of the can until they made contact and put one of the rubber bushings on ,followed by a 5x5 piece of metal ,rubber bushung, and capwasher and nut if you can get throu this poor explanation you can definately do this yourself if needed its been quite a few miles and bumps since but still works like a dream and it was free^^

the only thing left you should do is weld that plate in.
