Track bar bolt stuck
 
I'm lifting my Jeep and I need to get off the old track bar bolt so I can re-locate it, but the geniuses put a torx-head bolt on over it and it got stripped to hell. I tried drilling through it hoping I could get it out but it won't budge. Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah I tried tapping, the drill doesn't have enough power so I'll have to wait for when the neighbor get's home to weld.

Well I got a bigass grabbit tool and the drill wouldnt budge with it, so I fit a socket to it and torqued the hell out of it, finally came loose!

We talking about the rear trackbar? You putting on a TB relocation bracket?

The front came out with a wrench, the rear also got stripped but I got impatient and welded it.
