1994 v-8 Broken front strut mount bolt

My Grandfather has given me his 1994 Lx v-8 with 8o,ooo miles. I have been driving the car for a week but when I looked under the hood today I saw that the Driver's side strut mount had a broken bolt. It the on furthest to the front of the car. I then look on the Passenger's side that one of the bolts had 2 nuts on it. I can only guess that it has been to a repair shop and they replaced the Struts and broke a bolt (and yes I can tell it is broken)
There is not enough tread for me to put the nut back on. Shoul I care about it at all?

Re: 1994 v-8 Broken front strut mount bolt

the problem with replacing the bolt is that it is round on the under side. All the bolts are round so I guess that they are welded. One person said that I might be able to use a punch to get it out then put a normal bolt back in
