So I was taking off my passenger trailing arm to put in aftermarket bushings and install an adjustable toe link. The toe link bolt snapped and the inner bolt that holds on the trailing arm bushing and it's stuck about a quarter of an inch up inside. I'm pretty much stuck with this just chilling in my garage until something gets figure out so any help is appreciated

hard to tell without pictures but try welding a nut onto the snapped bolt and undo

This came up on a facebook group. The bolt has shearedinto the sliding captive nut?

Using a small dremel disk to cut access and then weld back up afterwards was the proposed solution. Assuming from your description that drilling carefully is not possible?
