shock mounts

I just noticed i broke one the rear shocks and after taking the piece off the mount on top is broken in two places where it is riveted to the frame. Does anybody know how to replace those rivets or is it better to just bolt back on the mount with stainless bolts? i am in a parking lot and do not have access to many rivet tools or air guns. Plus does anyone know where to get those big rivets that are needed?

Thanks Tim

The shock mounts are studs that are welded in place.

The incorrect shocks that are on your trailer is the cause of the problem.

Ok
I personally would take it to a truck repair facility that has chassis repair facilities. If you are in a parking lot you probably don't have what is needed for this type of repair.
There is a replacement shock mount that bolts in. Check this out this page they have two types. Speedway Motors - Product Summary
What chassis are we talking about? Length?

If they are incorrect shocks then what are the correct shocks?
