Turn the wheel side to side. The bolt will line RIGHT up. (have someone underneath to sneak the bolt in as you turn the wheel.

all those methods work, but as Cary said it's best to get an adjustable track bar to center your axle, Or a trac bar drop bracket and associated drop pitman arm. Even if you get it lined back up your suspension will sit lower on your drivers side and be "tweaked" from the trac bar pulling on the axle. Also makes for some not fun driving if you're going down rutted up roads...
