Angry Sway Bar bracker bolt broke! HELP!!!

I removed the old sway bar on the 2005 Chevy Impala because it was broke. Well one of my bracket bolts broke off flush with the frame of the car. Any ideas on trying to get this dame bolt out so I can put a new one in? Its the bolt closer to the front if that helps. Can i just use three bolts instead of all four? The area above the bolt is too small for a drill to try and drill it out. I am really frustrated by this. PLease help THanks in advance.

It might be possible to get a right angled air drill in there and drill a small hole and use an easy out bit. Pretty much you'd have to take it to a shop and have them do it.

Spray it good with some pb blaster if you are going to try and remove it on your own.
