I would recommend Meyle HD rear shock mounts. Meyle has a pretty good reputation, and I'll willing to bet they're cheaper than OEM. I ordered some last week.

I think you're talking about front mounts, right? I did the same thing. It was like 40 bucks at my super stealerahip, so it will be like 20 or so anywhere else. You will need to pull the front strut, so a spring compressor is required. No big deal though.

Get Rogue RSMs, they have great construction and mount from the underside.
