Help! Rear control arm issues

I am in the process of lowing my ek hatch and before I started a covered all the bolts in some PB blaster 2 days before.

Fronts went smooth as butter with no issues.

The backs however are another story. I snapped 3 of the 4 bolts required to get my rear control arms off.

It wasn't even like I was strong arming them. They just snapped right off. This is the 4th car I am lowering and never had a bolt just break so easy.

So now I am in a tough spot. I can drill them out but I have a feeling its going to take forever.

Do i pack it up and just take it to a shop at this point?

Is there any tips or tricks anybody knows of?
