I just did mine a week ago. I got mine from the local parts store for $21.90. Be careful because for some reason there is two different sizes listed. They gave me the ones that were way two small first. Very easy to install. Two bolts on each one, the bracket pulls off and there is a split in the bushing pulls right off. I used an impact gun and a jack. I used the jack to hold the sway bar in place. Very easy and solved my clunking sound!

The bushings need to be pressed out. I used a ball joint press on mine (looks like a big c clamp).

you only need to press the old out if you use energy poly stuff and re-use your old links. if you replace the whole link then its just the two bolts and then chuck the old one. I didn't want to use new china made cheap stuff so I used the energy poly and it was not fun but not hard either!
