Bolt extraction? - axle torx bolts 2 stuck

Im in the process of dropping the rear subframe and taking the differential out

Only problem is that I managed to removed 10/12 rear axle bolts. The other two were literally rounded out to circles. It was retarded.

I ground off the heads off those 2 bolts

How good are those bolt extractors? Pretty much my only option is to use one

How easy is it to use one of these? From what i understand, you drill a smaller hole then the extractor and hammer in this tool and reverse it out and it should grab the bolt

Ive soaked the bolt in PB blaster. Just such a headache / mess
