Well I really screwed this one up...was in a hurry to do the brakes and grabbed the wrong torque bit (used the one for my '98 Camaro). Since it didn't break loose I just put the tires back on until I can get my hands on a new bolt but now I have to figure out how to get the stripped bolt out of there. Of course the end of the bolt is round but I might be able to get my vice grips on the round part and smack it with a hammer. Any other ideas? To make things worse the I need to get it inspected by the end of the month. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

If you clamp the vise grips on there as tight as you can stand it.....i've got them to break free before......you could also maybe try file/grinding some flat spots onto the round bolt head for better grip

Now that's a good idea, thanks for the tip.
