Default How To Remove A Rounded Nut?

So my rear coilovers are blown and in order to take them off I have to remove the 2 upper nuts that connect to the body of the car, long story short one of the nuts up there is rounded like a soccer ball, there is absolutely no straight edges to it anymore, I went to sears and got a craftsman bolt out kit tried it and nothing I ended up finishing the teeth on the bolt out kit before I could even move the nut. It's starting to reaaaaallllly piss me off, I need tips and advice pleaseeeeeeeee IM DESPERATE!!!!!!!!!

@BurntOrangeAppeal maybe you have some mechanic advice you can give me?

You hammer on the right size and it'll take off anything.

Any luck. Just be careful not to break the stud off. That is even worse...
