Oppo repair help

Replacing the struts on my girlfriend’s 97 Camry. Everything going relatively smoothly till now. I got 3 corners done in a couple hours but then I got to the driver’s rear. I had to set the sway bar end link nut on fire after soaking it in PB blaster to get it off. Got the bottom bolt/nut loose but can’t get the top bottom loose. I’ve partly rounded off the bolt and broke an adapter. Any suggestions appreciated.

I’ve thought about taking off the caliper to make more room but with every nut and bolt has been a fight on this corner I’m afraid to go down that path. I started with the torch again but it’s right next to the brake line so I stopped. I’m ok with cutting the bolt out if need be since it’ll need replacing anyway but wouldn’t know how to go down that path
