Broken Camber plate

I have the eibach camber plate on the front suspension of my car and the eibach sportline springs. Today while driving hit a curb at about 3mph went up on the curb front and back passenger side of the car and when i came down i heard something break, upon inspection i found that the passenger side bolt on the top of the strut has pulled through the camber plate along with the metal section of the camber plate it was attached to. I'm pretty sure the camber plate is the only thing that broke but just wanted to check how screwed i am right now.

just occurred to me that the strut tower nut could have stripped off the bolt which would also result in the same problem
