Default Dealing with sheared bolts

Hi all, I went under my car the other day to install my DRT skidplate and found that 3/5 of the holes needed to do so have sheared bolts. The front driver's side bolt on the subframe looks like this:



The other two are on the jacking plate--I felt the tops of the two bolts, and the nuts are still attached and rusted in place.



I've tried a left-handed drill bit set on the front, but that didn't work. Would an easy out extraction set work? Should I try a torch? Or find someplace to take it to? Thanks.

You can get a whole new jack plate for not much dough. Ask your local dealer. a torch might help with the fronts, did you drill all the way through with the LH bit? if so, then yes you should be able to put an easyout into that hole and with heat/PB Blaster/effort they might come out.
