          Nasty......
          Drill and tap a hole for a good size bolt and try getting it out with a slide hammer?

                    glad to hear that u got it out. i was thinking about suggesting that u weld a bolt to it or something and then pull it out.

                      i did somthing like that, i drilled a whole about an inch deep, and smacked a screw and washer in there with a big hammer, then used a ball joint splitter to pull it out. i know its ghetto, but it worked lol

                      now i have another problem,
                      wen i was driving on the freeway, a prelude try to race me, so i went for it, then my car was shaking and pulling to the left extremely hard, as if the axle was binding. what the heck could that be?

                        i'd do a full check of ur suspension parts, ball joints, bushings, wheel bearings, axles, tires, etc.
