Triple88a heating it up too much will unheat treat it. Heating it up until its just barely red should be normal. Well see what you can do.

Mike001 Can't heating it up and pour water on it weaken the steel? You needed a punch and a hammer, mine were a pain to get out to but they came out with some TLC. Anyway I would get a punch thats cover the hole you made but not the one on the swaybar and start pounding.

Triple88a Do you have something to heat it up with? I've seen people heat stuf like that up and pour water right on the bolt or in your case the stuck piece and since it shrinks it should pop right off. I'm guessing rust is the enemy here so drain it in oil and see if you can pop it out tomorow. If not get it on the floor on top of a big (maybe 1") nut and torch it till red and pound on it with a screw and a hammer. Use vise grips to hold the screw and NOT your fingers. Since its tapered make sure its pointing down so you are not trying to take out the taper through the small side.

These swaybar links are getting old!

I got one out just fine, but the other one, now that is a different story! The damn bolt at the top twisted off, so then I had nothing (threads) to beat on to get the damn thing out, so I lop it off with the Sawsall. Now I have this tapered shaft stuck in the hole, basically flush on both sides. I grind them down smooth hopeing that I can find something to punch it out with, but that does not work. I drill a 1/4" hole on it hopeing that will weaken it, but that blows too. Now I have a 1/4" hole that is not exactley centered. To the best of my ability in figuring out the hole size I think it is a 15/32". Finally my question, If I drill a 15/32" hole which will be close to center, but not perfect will I still be ok? If I do that, which will leave a little of the swaybar shaft which may then fall out and make the hole a little bigger, will I still be ok? I do not know if this part has a tight tolerance or not? Sorry for all of the questions, but I thought this would go alot smooter! I changed my spark plugs yesterday and that went perfect! I do have some mechanical abilities, but this one got a little out of control for some reason. Thanks, Scooby
