    Couldn't you just drill the busted bolt out?

    Sears sells the "Easy-Out" for a decent price. Drill a small hole in the broken bolt(use a center punch to ensure you the drill bit does not walk) and then use the easy-out. Use break-free or something similar the night before to soak the broken bolt.

    By your self a set of reversible drill bits - center punch & then drill. Heat created from drilling will also help break it free.
