Default seized camber bolt

Lowering my son's car and came to a seized adjustable (non-factory) camber bolt. the other three factory bolts did not present any problems. I cannot hammer it out no matter what I do.
HELP???

The hole the camber bolt goes through should be slotted. Make sure you twist the bolt so the cam aligns with the hole.

You are probably not aligned and getting caught on the lip.

That's what I thought. But, it was just seized. I heated it with a torch, whacked with a sledge hammer, and in the end cut it off with a grinder. only took 90 minutes on the whole strut rebuilt/lowering springs install...
