I'm betting that the eccentric on the bolt has turned and that the holes in the strut tabs aren't lined up with the hole in the knuckle close enough for the eccentric to clear. Loosen the other bolt (a lot) so you can wiggle things around with things like floor jacks and pry bars, and try turning the bolt. If the bolt head end was what broke, I'd probably tackweld the nut to the bolt, cut the flag off of the washer, and turn the nut to different positions before getting out the hammer. Don't just use the hammer.


Now, on to other matters.

Have a little patience. At least wait more than a minute or five before poking the forum again for an answer to the same question. The time would be better spent looking at your busted crash bolt situation. If you don't know what this Whiteline bolt looks like, look it up. It'll help you see what you're up against.

And now you know the main reason I won't ever endorse the use of aftermarket reduced-shank strut to knuckle fasteners (gee, I bet that means reduced strength as well).
