Front lower control arm bolt

Replacing the lower control arms on my car and can't believe how tight the bolt that goes through the sub frame is. Had a 1/2 drive breaker bar with 18mm impact socket and a 5 foot bar for leverage. The socket ended up slipping on the head of the bolt. Soaked it with PB blaster for two days prior. I am in the process of grinding the head off and driving it out that way. I am unable to heat it up due to the lack of room. Any suggestions before I start on the other side? Thanks
