Eccentric bolt... HELP

Ok guys I was replacing my controls arms in the rear of my 2001 740i MSPORT. The control arm to front of the wishbone (aluminum color) had this so called eccentric bolt. It broke off. Do I need to buy another bolt like that or can I just run a normal bolt through it? Any help as soon as possible would be great.

You NEED the Eccentric bolt Period...That bolt controls the the wheel`s "TOE" either Toe in or TOE out....very critical for a proper alignment and tire wear

Yea that's what I figured. Haha so I just went to the stealer ship and got two new ones. And they didn't send nuts with the bolt so they gave them to me for free(:
