Yesterday was replacing suspension and also attempting change lower and upper control arms, when i noticed that a chassis nut was broken off of the passenger side front lower control, could this be fixed or will it cause harm as time passes by???

It looks stripped not broken ?

Is it loose or is it welded to the car ?

So when you try to remove the bolt the nut just spins ?

Yup, then when i checked the other side the nut is part of the chassis
I went through the same thing installing my adjustable links. I drove mine around like that for a few weeks. The only way I got it out was to cut that nut off and buy a new nut and bolt. It's not going to loosen up and fall apart. If you need to get into out you will have to do some cutting.

One side I had to but the nut off amen the bolt head off to get the arm out to replace it. The rest of the bolt was stuck inside the old arm bushing. I tried pb blaster and everything else to get into out.
