I have ab800 bought 2 softbox's from amvoma but they are to heavy for lights how can i connect them to the light stand instead of the ab any suggestions because the lightbox's are great.

That's a long mixed up sentence, it's quite hard to read. How about telling us what stands you have, and how you current connect everything together. You have a speed ring? Any heavy duty light stands will be fine, I have 13' impact stands. I'd probably buy another brand next time, these ones are a bit fiddly to adjust the feet.

I have ab 13ft heavy duty stands. I currenty use the speed rings that came with the amvona softboxs. The problem is not the stand but the light ring wont stay on the light very good.
I was wondering if there is a way to hook the softbox to the light stand or would you do something different.

Sounds like you need another speedring to me. I have the AlienBees speedring and it works fine.

The amvona's speedring has a larger opening than the AB's. If you are handy with a hacksaw, cutting part of the ring off will fit the AB strobe.

Iwill try that if not is there anyway to hook them directly to the light stand

Light modifiers are attached to lights, not stands.

I modified my amvona speedring with drill and file to make holes the alienbees hooks fit in.
