I've done the same thing, except that I tightened a bolt too tight and took a turn to hard . Anyway, that bolt is on a plate, it holds the top of your strut. You can run w/out the bolt, but it'll put extra stress on the other 2 bolts and will cause a BIG safety concern.

You can't just replace the bolt. You must replace the entire assembly, as it's 1 peice. $60 at the dealership if I recall correctly. I just said hell with it and paid them to do it. You have to compress the spring and take out the shock, and I don't feel like having a spring take off my head if I don't do it correctly.
