\'55 Willys, busted shackle

A couple guys that had went prospecting with had a rear shackle break off. It's the rear shackle, the old hook type. The broken part is in the upper portion.
Does anyone know of a way to get the broken part out. They have been beating on it and have tried heat. It appears to be forged steel as it's damn hard to drill.
I thought a guy could scarf the rivets off and use a press to get it out. Any ideas?
