Leaf Spring Mount

So my truck has been making some noise in lately so me and my buddy looked at it and I have a broken leaf spring mount. It looks like it is rivited in. Can i just pound out those rivits and get a new mounting bracket from a junk yard and bolt it on

I'm pretty sure you have to grind the heads off the rivets and then pound them out. For a replacement I would just pick this set up off eBay.

Yeah, grind down those rivet heads from the outside, then pound them through. Bolt on the replacement, done.
