have you tried useing an EZ out exstractor or left handed drill bits that can be picked up at any automotive store or tool store. If that does not work try completey drilling out the old bolt and rethread the hole for the bolt. If its on the strut and the bolt will be replaced with the new strut try useing a cut off tool to remove the bolt just to remove the strut and replace.

1. You can replace the spindle = Expensive
2. You can use a small drill bit (cobalt) and drill though enough to use an extractor to remove the offending piece.
Suggestions to help might be to use a little PB Blaster and or heat on the bolt before trying to remove the offending piece before you attempt to remove it with an extractor. Take your time as you will most likely get only one chance to get it out.
Extractor sets are pretty cheap at Harbor Freight if you have one near you. You can insert the extractor from either side in the bolt hole.

if you cant grab it to take out. just drill a hole in it, and use a easy out or similar to remove stud. or if you can use a punch to knock it out. good-luck !!

break the other one off and buy new bolts.
Make sure you get the correct replacements. (grade 8 or stronger)
