Icon8 Shock Problem

While replacing the shocks, the right front shock lower mount bolt sheared off. Any suggestions on what to do next? I'm thinking that I'll have to replace the whole bracket. Is there something easier?

Just did a redneck repair on the shock mount. After putting the new shock in place there was just enough thread sticking out that I was able to weld a large washer on to the end of it. I had taken a large c clamp and pulled in the bottom of the shock so that after the weld the rubber shock mounts could expand and have a tight fit. I think that it will hold for the life of the shock which will probably be longer than mine.
