Default Shock mount sheared

Ok all you junkies, looking for the easiest way to remove a sheared shock mount, it was like this when I got the bike, and I thought I would pick y'alls brains out there in Sporty land. It's an 87 and I am looking for the easiest and cheapest way to remove it and replace it. Any thoughts or experience in fixing this would be greatly appreciated. it's the left rear upper mount. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...20000..&type=3

LOL let me find out somebody actually snapped one of those pos. Haha I always knew it would happen. Either ramping it or way way overloaded. I turned a set down on a lathe once to fit a pair of shocks off a Kawasaki Kodiak 4 wheeler and was worried they would shear on landing but never did.
