Rear upper control arm

Well my jeeps been making a thump noise whenever I go over bumps for a day so a couple minutes ago I climbed under it to figure out what it was. Turns out my driver side rear upper control arm is not even connected to the axle. Went wheeling last week and I guess the bolt came off.

My question is where can I buy the bushings and the bolts? And could anything bad happen from the control arm not being connected for a few days? It doesn't seem like anything could. Thanks

What kind of upper control arms do you have? Are they stock or Rubicon Express as indicated by your profile ? The bolt should be a 7/16" or a size down in metric if stock
4wd has rubicon express bushings
