OH @#%^! Broken front strut mount bolt/stud on eibach sportline

MODS<<< Please close thread, I just found out the upper strut mount is a Ford piece. Thanks.

So I changed my clutch master cylinder the other day and had to remove the front strut tower brace to be able to move some other things around to get to the clutch lines. Got the master cylinder put back and was buttoning everything up. Put the strut tower brace back in place and after some finagling got it lined up right. It was getting late and a buddy was helping me finish up and he was tightening the nuts for the strut tower and ended up overtorquing one of them and twisted the bolt/stud off right level with the hole in the top strut mount surface.

Can anybody tell me if there's a way to just replace that bolt or stud? I didn't install the sportlines so I don't exactly know what else is down there or specifically where the bolt/stud comes from? Right now I'm nervously driving around with 2 out of 3 fastened.

Any advice or feedback would be much appreciated.
