So with all of everyones input in mind what is the bottom line cheapest and easiest? I dont mind have to drill the new holes if needed. I need to find some servos for this puppy to get it running.

The stock servo's don't last long (mine burnt up, melted the case and smoked after 1 month of owning the truck) so I wouldn't bother fixing them. Just go get two JR SM22 servos, you'll only have to drill 4 holes in the chassis and it works great. I've been running them for about 6 months or so now with no problem.

I took some, but my camera really sucks so they're not very good pics. Since they only have one hole on each end of the servo, you just place the servo in position, drill a hole at each end into the chassis and screw them down. You can see the screws I used to mount them in the second pic.

That seems a little high for the stock losi servos, that admittedly are junk (for the money), but for about the same amount of cash you might want to consider the HiTec HS-65MG servos. They're a far superior servo, a definate upgrade, more torque, have nearly indestructable metal gears, and are a drop in replacement (only slight modding needed).
