Exclamation Broken rear upper shock mount 12 f250 HELP!!!

Hey gang-- did a bonehead move and sheared the bolt off on the upper rear shock mount while installing my new shocks w/ my impact gun ....The truck is a 2012 f250. It wouldnt be that big of a deal but the cradle is riveted to the frame and the stud does not appear to be able to come off to be replaced....ive put a 18" pipe wrench to it and doesnt appear to be able to be screwed off.....am I missing something or does anybody know what I can do??

If all else fails ill have to grind the heads off the rivets and get the entire bracket replaced and bolt a new one on (lord knows how long that will take to get and how much!! )

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!

2012 F250 King Ranch

Cut the stud off and weld a bolt to the bracket? Or cut the stud off and drill a hole through the bracket where the stud used to be and use a bolt?
