Help - Rear Shock Replacements

I have a '78 300SD (W116) and decided that it was time to replace the rear shocks. Before getting too deep into the job, I wanted to make sure that I could easily loosen all the nuts and bolts.

Well, I removed the nuts from the top of the shocks just fine. Three out of four of the bottom mounting bolts were loosened just fine. The fourth broke!!! The head snapped right off of the bolt.

What should I do now? What is the best way to remove what is remaining so that I can properly install the new shock?

Please help.
