Replacing Leaf Spring Mounting Brackets-93 4cyl

Looks like I'll need to replace the Leaf Spring Mounting Brackets on a 93 4cyl.
All 4 of them look to be in pretty bad shape.

They are attached with what looks like large rivets and I was wondering if I should use a torch and cut them or use an air chisel to remove them.

I was also wondering if I'd just use bolts, lock washers and nuts to connect the new mounts to the frame.

Thanks.

torch, grinder, chisel, whatever you have. torch would be the fastest as long as you cut only the rivet.

and yep, nuts and bolts are the way to go.

you can also flip the rear shackles over to get a 2" drop if you wanted to go that route as well.
