Get a new bolt. If you are doing more work on your car and you come across more nasty bolts use some liquid wrench first or something like that to prevent stripping or seizing.

I've had this happen before.
- If it's the bottom endlink bolt that can slide out, just get a new nut and bolt to fit
- If it's the top bolt fixed into the bushing, your endlink will need replacement. If there's enough thread to get a nut on there you can use epoxy to keep it from backing out but you'll have the cut the bolt to get the endlink off for replacement.
- If it's the bracket bolts just replace them with new nuts and bolts.

You get the idea.

I asked whiteline for another bolt when it sheared after 3 years they sent me a complete rear bolt kit for free.

Solid customer service
