06 Rubicon: Stripped off bolt head on Rear Shock Bolt!

New to the Jeep World and I love it! I installed rear Bilstein 5100 shocks on my 2006 Rubi. Driver side rear shock install went well. But I broke off one of the top bolts on the other side. Can I run with one bolt on the top of shock and still be OK? Does anyone have a suggestion or should I take it to a shop to remove broken bolt? I tried to drill in center on bolt to extract but kept on breaking drill bits.

I snapped all four when doing mine. Had to use an air hammer with a punch to knock out the nutcerts

Broke one on each side of my 03 when I did my lift. If it is anything like mine, there is no way you can run with only one bolt. It is a Y connector instead of an O. Like the previous post, I used on air hammer to blow off the nuts and used a separate nut and bolt.
