Ok i have a question for you. How long did you think of a solution for before coming here and asking this question. Not sure exactly what your asking but i'm sure it could be fixed easily. exercise your brain.

well it is the front drivers side both nuts have broken off the rear is the hardest to get to i've tried welding it with my mig gun didn't have much luck i have the front welded in so i can at least hold the bumper on while mock up is in progress an i took a nut an bolt to secure the other one since you can reach the nut with a socket. i'd rather not leave it this way since it is a pita. i was trying to find out if this has happend to anyone else an how they solved it or if there was an easier way to fix it.

Use a stick welder. You can bend it to get where you need.
