Thanks for responding John.

I am rebuilding the rubber on the subframe, new hydro shocks and springs. Its going back in, so since I have a new shock, should I just drill it out?

I guess I'm not "rebuilding" I'm replacing the subframe mounts, springs and shocks. The right shock is leaking, so I am replacing both.

I've read up on the removal process and its coming along nicely, until this point. The 5mm hex is just round, almost like someone tried to over tighten or failed at one point to extract it with the wrong size. Do you think and easy out would work?
