8" Icon install help!

So me my father and a friend installed a 8" icon all leaf. on my 2004 f350.
When installing the rear shocks we striped the hanging stud that connects to the frame. I had to grab a torch and cut the old shock off

Now taking a closer look at the bracket, it is riveted to the frame..

Would it be possible to use a thread chaser or something to correct the studs threads? Besides that everything went very smooth. Also does anyone know the size needed for that stud thanks.

I dont remeber the exact size, but if the stud is not messed up too bad you could use a thread chaser.
