That is not fun. did you try and heat them? can you still get vicegrips on them to try and turn them. some times I have been able to weld a nut to what is left to the stud, then use that to spin them out. You may have to pull the head and drill them out if you cant do it in the truck.

If you try to heat them just be carefull. Metal does not have to be cherry red inorder to break free. Just be careful. I have used a little bit bigger nut that will slid on and then weld it like Pontiacross said.

That is what this North country will do to theses trucks.

Ivan has a stud remover and that works slick **** I was impressed.
