Default Control Arm Replacement

I am replacing the front control arm on my 2000 outback. I broke the bolt that holds the ball joint into place. My question is can I put in a bolt with a nut on the other side to do the job? Thanks in advance

Damn how did you break the bolt? Are you talking about the bolt that goes through on the hub to hold the ball joint? Any pics?

Those bolts break all the time when doing the impreza control arm recalls.
I have through bolted it like that a few times
