He's talking about the mount that the rear shock connects to the body through. Hence the name "Rear Shock Mount"
I would talk to the person you got the mount from if it's brand new... wait, is your car lowered?

OK... then what do you mean by break. I've never seen one break. Are you bottoming out your shocks? It's not like there's a bunch of moving parts in there or anything! I know that the E36's had problems with the actual shock towers tearing, but I haven't really heard of the E30's having any issues on a regular basis.
