Angry Rear sway bar install problems.. PLEASE HELP!

Alright so i decide to finally install my progress rear sway bar that i bought a month ago. ok, so i unbolted the endlink assemblies on either end then moved on to the U brackets. Right side... nice and easy, both bolts came out fine. On to the left side... bottom bolt came out easily. Moved on the top bolt and wouldnt you know it, the stationary nut or whatever that is welded to the car (that the bolt threads through) snaps free from its weld. Fantastic! So i spent the next hour trying to figure out how to get a wrench or something on that nut so i could unscrew the bolt. After an hour or so and after stripping the hex head of that crappy bolt i finally gave up. Bolted everything back up and left the stock bar on. Only problem now, i have a somewhat loose top bolt holding the left U-bracket. Anyone know of a (easy) way to get to that bolt out?
