Take the bolt to a hardware store and they can match it up and sell you a new one.

But it does look like it has a space between the washer type thing and the heads there are reason for this spacing?

That makes sense, our junkyards here have wheel barrows they let us use so we can carry all that stuff around. We're also not allowed to bring jacks into ours here, all of our cars are up on some stands they made out of old wheels lol.

I wish I could find a front clip that is complete when I need one, either they're all half taken already or it's sitting in the crusher getting crushed as you walk into the yard. That actually happened to me once, it was a very sad day that day.
