I am trying to remove my rear axles so I can get them remanufactured. I ran into a situation. I have three stripped bolts that I can't get out. One is on the driver's side diff side of the axle. The others are on the passenger's side diff side of axle and the passenger's side wheel side of the axle. Does anybody have any ideas about fixing this. I tried to use a torx bit to see if it could get grip but that didn't work. I tried grip pliers on the wheel side but couldn't get a grip. Please help if you can. I'm desperate.

Had the same problem on a Porsche axle. I had to use a pair of Vicegrips on one and I had to grind down the end of a easyout to fit in the end of the stripped out allen head bolt. Hope this helps.
