Default Removing a trashed rear spring retaining plate

This bolt/plate has met an untimely demise in my 1991 244. The bolt just spins freely in the plate, and the nut is seized to the bolt.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s felt this pain. Also seems like a tough place to fit an angle grinder. Regardless, I’ve got a replacement one and I’m going to attack it this weekend.

What’s the TB preferred method for freeing one of these from a trailing arm? Drill it out? Try and cut it?
