[Healeys] BJ8 - shock problems

Here is what I did on my BJ8. It´s nuts that’s welded under the plate, not bolts. On my car one nut was loose, got it welded back in place with not too many problems.

Also several threads were bad, fixed them with a heli coil set. 

Today I would probably remove the plate and weld 4 new nuts below. There is not much room to work on with that heli coil set.

How can the bolts be upside down?  Please describe it better so we can help.

In an attempt to tighten up the front end on my BJ8, I've purchased reconditioned armstrong shocks for the front and back.  Starting into the project, I'm already at my first challenge.  On the passenger side all four bolts are upside down and when I try to loosen the bolts just spin. 


Reading through some articles by Norman Nock, it sounds like these bolts may have at some point come loose, striped the threads on both the bolts and shock plate, or striped off the nuts.  


Does anyone have suggestions on how I should proceed?
