Help! bolt wont come out!

I was installing my phb brace, the two 15mm bolt on driver side came out easily with 3/8 rachet but chassis frame mount side 15mm bolt is extremely overtorqued. I somewhat rounded the bolt while trying to force it to budge. Now the 15mm socket gets stuck if i put force on it. What can i do now? Also does anyone know the part number for this bolt, ill need it when i get it off.

Best bet is some PB Blaster (It's either blaster or buster) and let it soak for a few mins. If its already rounded then they sell special sockets at Autozone that cut into the bolt to help remove it. That might be your best option. That and a breaker bar.

Loosen the nut vs. the bolt head using (I believe) an 18mm deep socket - and a breaker bar.
