I snapped off one of the lower front shock bolts while installing a roush kit today. The bolt has a head and I tried to wrench it from the bottom of the control arm but it won't budge. Do I have to drill it out or is it possible to hammer it out or can I remove it if I remove the spring? The bolt appears to be sealed or pressed into the control arm. Any ideas?

Same thing happened on a buddy of mines Harley SCREW. He forgot lefty loosey, righty tighty, NOOB Mistake. Anyhoo, his appeared to have two tac welds on each side of the bolt head. He took it down to a shop where they toook wheel and shock off,t hen used a cutting torch to cut it out, drop in a new bolt and re-tac weld it in place.

I checked mine and don't see that it is tack welded. It appears it is pressed in? I tried using a hammer but it didn't budge. I will probably try to drill it out tomorrow evening unless anyone else has an idea.
