    Two of the bolts are broken inside the frame from the previous owner so that isn't an option

    That's really not good... Those bolts are really important...
    I don't know if your bolts are still there and holding anything or missing ???

    HOWEVER... It can help to get a snug fitting six point socket with an extension and push/pull/reef on the extension to help line up the bolt...
    Maybe even JB weld the socket to the bolt so you can push/pull/reef...
