Sway Bar Link Removal
I'm trying to remove the sway bar links on my '95 but I can not get the tapered bolts on the top to budge. Does anyone have any suggestions? Got them soaking with PB blaster right now. Thanks for any help.

Just did mine today. When I was trying to get the links off of the sway bar I ended up using the torch to throw a little heat on the sway bar ends and wiggled the links off. Then used a vise and socket to push the tapered bits out to replace the bushings.

Other options include a tie rod remover, or a pickle fork.

Thanks for the input, I'm going to try to get back to it later today or tomorrow.

I ended up having to take the sway bar off, but a couple good whacks with the sledge hammer and both the end links came off.
