Sheared off shock absorber post-1995 Dynasty

Inspecting my radiators today I noticed that I had a rear shock that wasn't attached at the top. Further inspection revealed that the post had been sheared off. I am writing to ask what sort of repair facility might handle such a repair. I live in Phoenix and would appreciate some names or repair shops you might know and recommend.

If anyone has ever experienced something like this - did you remove the wheel well plastic sheet to improve access. Thanks.

The air spring next to your broken upper shock bolt looks to be waaaay extended, IMO. I know that shocks can break in half due to a ride height over-height situation. Maybe the upper bolt gave out before the shock broke?

If the airs spring is extended due to being jacked up in the air, that is another matter.

Either way, a broken shock mount bolt, top or bottom, is not unheard of and the prior post had a good remedy.
