Icon4 Replace front shocks, help

Ok I was trying to get the front shocks off of a 97 B2300 and the nut took the bolt and washer with it. On top and bottom. The set up is different that the 2000 era rangers. them would be easy but not this. The spindle seems like its welded in to a control arm. And the parts store could not find a spindle thing in their catalogue.
I am looking at tracking down a junk yard control arm or the parts place had a part number for the control arm but its picture showed two holes where the spindle should be. and the guy couldn't find any kit that would go there to give me a spindle thing, but he did not look hard for that though. So maybe that is option.
I am posting here to see if any one has any other ideas. Plz help.
