Default Bolt broken in rear AFS sensor...

I recently lowered my car and got the AFS error so we went back under and tried to adjust it.

There is a bolt that goes straight through the sensor that we tried to loosen. I was loosening the nut and it literally twisted off with part of the bolt. So now 3/4 of the bolt is still there but now I had to completely remove the brackets so it's just not dangling there.

Is that long bolt that goes through the sensor replaceable? Or do I need to get an entirely new sensor? (God, I hope not).

Heres what I'm talking about: Ignore the red arrows as its from a previous thread but there is a long bolt that goes through it. You can see the tip at the top of the black bracket.. thats the tip that twisted off with the nut.

I found the parts on Sewell, but is the bolt part # the correct one?

You're probably super eager to get your ride right so I would suggest calling sewell and talking to one of the parts guys to get a fast answer!
