I'm afraid to beat on it too hard with a chisel/punch and risk knocking off the captured nut. Not sure what I'd do if that happened......

Marco - probably about 1/8" recessed.

Grind it smooth with the frame. Weld on a bolt to the frame facing down And bolt your bump stop to the new welded bolts. Id also reccomed using a larger bolt and re drill the bump stop to accommodate the bigger studs day 10 or 12'm shaft. IF you juat must get it out. Best Way is to take a chizzle and lightly tap the extractor clockwise It should relase it's grip and just fall out.

That's exactly what I did. On the same two bolts. For the same reason.

EZ-outs (extractors) are made of the same hardened carbon steel that drill bits are made of.

If it isn't too rusty, you might have some luck with a small (~1/4 wide) cold chisel. Mine were too rusty for that. After I torched them out, I redrilled and tapped and helicoiled.

After that fiasco I decided not not use EZ-outs any more

That's exactly where I am at this point - bolt extractors are evil. For the 3 other bolts I snapped yesterday, i just drilled out the remains of the bolt and than ran a tap to clean out what was left.

Yeppers, that's what I did. And banish those evil extractors to the scrap heap!
