Track bar bushing?

The steering in my 2000 psd has been terrible lately and it even has the death wobble. I replaced the outer drivers side tie rod and have the tires at 1/4" toe in. Had my wife move the steering wheel back and forth and notice the track bar was moving slightly back and forth making the whole frontend move very slightly. Took the top bolt out and noticed where the large bolt goes through the track bar bushing that theres a lot of "space" between the metal bushing and the bolt. Should there be or do I need to replace the bushing? If so where do I find the bushing? There is a 6" lift on my truck so I believe the trackbar isnt stock but I cant remember fro sure.

Ok so I just tightened the track bar back up and while my wife moved the steering I noticed the drop bracket was moving now instead the the bar. I then noticed the the one bolt on the frame toward the front was broke off! So I remved the bracket to only find out the the broken bolt is attached to a kind of bracket in the frame and it wont come out! Looks like the only way to get it out would be to remove the power steering box as theres like spacers in there keeping it from coming out. Is there another way?
