Will it be hard for a shop to get this out?

Will it be hard for a shop to get this out?

I was going to install some coilovers on my car today but when I tried to loosen the bolt that holds the stock suspension assembly into the top part of the fork the head of the bolt snapped off.

The bolt that snapped is the one labeled #10 in this pic


Am I going to have to take out the whole fork (part #7/8) with the suspension still in it then buy a new part for my new coilovers or will a shop be able to get that bolt out?

just order a new fork and bolt, its goning to be hard to remove the fork because the bolt goes through part of the shock, there is a flat on the shock the bolt edge goes through. remove the shock and fork as an assembly then you will have to strongarm the fork off the shock. I have done a coulple like this and it took me longer to remove the bolt, cost the customer more in labour then just replacing the fork

Thanks for the info, you obviously know what you're talking about. Where is your shop located, if is close buy I'd definately consider bringing my coils there to have them installed. After breaking the bolt of the suspension on the first corner I tried I'm scared that without the proper tools I'll end up breaking more bolts. I'd rather bring a replacement fork and my coils over to you.
