Ok so i have looked at the bracket that holds my track bar on, and there are two bolts and one has snapped off at the head, ive attatched a picture so you can get an idea
my question is how do i get it out? as far as i know the chassis is not threaded? ive tried a punch, ive even tried placing a steel rod on a jack and lifting it up but it wont budge, just lifts the car up. how do i get it out? i cant get a socket on the nut on the other side because there is another bolt in the way.
Wow, those are some serious big bolts, I'm surprised it snapped, I just had to remove my bracket to install my new trac bar, which in this case, is probably what you have to do, remove the other lower bolt and the 2 on the side of the frame, the trac bar bracket will fall downward, fortunately off any remaining bolt protruding, but appears to be snapped even with the frame, then you should be able to deal better with the broken one. My bolts were froze on there, but came loose with a 8' breaker bar, so I'm surprised yours snapped, might have been a flawed bolt, either way, down it comes to fix it.
Keep us posted along the way, also, add your year make and model in your profile and/or signature to know what vehicle your inquiring about, will help us with future questions you may have.
You may need to drop the bracket off and drill out the bolt,it may have been broken by the po bring to remove it. If you get the bracket off and there is enough of the bolt sticking out of the unitbody you may be able to weld on a nut and use some heat to see if you can break it loose.

Take one of the good bolts, go to a tractor repair place, they should have a bolt or 2 laying around, not a lawn mower shop, a real tractor-Ford 8*9N's, Massey Ferg,-John Deere,-Holland- etc. etc. type of repair shop.
And use anti-seize on the threads when you re-install
IIRC it is a 12mm, 2mm thread pitch bolt. Can't remember the length. Use Class 10.9 or 12.9, if they're trying to sell you a class 8.8 don't buy it. That's one of the most important bolts in your undercarriage..
