Default YJ steering damper bolt broke off. Also have bad death wobble.

The axle under the front of my truck is out of a 94 Jeep YJ.

I've had a slight shake around 45-60 and it got worse so I checked everything.
The only thing I could see wrong was the steering damper, it was leaking a little.

As I was removing the bolt from the axle side, it broke, taking my hand with it and breaking my middle finger.

Anyways, I'm looking for the replacement bolt (or the size/thread).
I'm also looking for someone that might be able to drill it out or remove it somehow.

The shake has now turned in to the full blown death wobble from hell and I can't drive over 40mph.
