Are you trying to grt the nut off or the bolt out of the swaybar? That Friggen Bolt is a bear. put the nut on a few threads and prop the bar and beat the living daylights out of it. it should break loose i don't know if they make a fork that small but they may.

Go to Autozone a rent a small puller.I rented a pitman arm puller and put it on the balljoint and beat it with a hammer until it popped out and then just install the new ones.

The puller I rented was small so it did not fit around the pitman arm,but you just need some type of puller for a small balljoint.

Easy way, remove the bottom bolts from the stock ones and slide them off. Remove the 4 bolts from the sway bar, take the nuts off and use a 5 lb sledge on a rock to drive them out, those things are tapered and about as bad as the tapered bolt in the steering dampener on an XJ.
Another way, loosen the nuts on top about half way, then drive each side over a rock, that will also pop them loose.

All you need is 2 hammers. Spin the bar down hold one hammer up against metal and with the other hammer SMACK the other side. After a couple smacks the end link will drop out. No mushroomed heads or messed up nuts this way

Take the nuts off, and follow Scoobs advise to do it right.

I've done it several ways, the EZiest is to loosed the nut and then smack the nut with a 5lb sledge, then push the end link back up to capture the spining shaft and undo the nut, however it can screw up your threads. I've never re-used the stock link so it doesn't matter to me if they get buggered up.
