Default Torsion Problem

so I went out to level my truck finally, raised it up and did the left side and it was a breeze. I went around to do the right side and the damn torsen bolt is rounded off. It will accept the 13 mm socket but when I go to crank it,it just break free and spins on it. No wonder the truck wasnt leveled when I bought it, but any ideas on how to work this.

Various companies sell products for removing rounded bolt heads, checkout your local hardware store.

I use the snap on extractors. Once you get it out don't go cheap for the replacement.
