track bar bracket bolt fell out

So I'm in the mountains and I heard a metal sound while driving on the road so I stopped and found that my bolt in my rear trackbar bracket fell out. So I took one of my quick discos clamp and put it through for atleast some help. I searched for a long time trying to find it on the road but no luck. Any advice? I have no idea what to do or if its harmful or not.

If you drive very carefully and take it easy around curves until you can get the bolt replaced, you'll be fine. Now that'd be a serious problem if it happened to the front track bar instead.

K I got home and luckily home depot was open. I was able to fix it pretty easily. I also replaced my front track bar bolt because the previous owner had almost stripped out the torx. Thanks Jerry

Were you able to replace it with a 'grade 8' or metric equivalent?
