Sway Bar Link and Stabilizer Bar

When we were working on the Jeep, we also noticed that the Sway Bar was broken at the top. We were able to remove the sway bar link and the top nut. However, the top bolt is stuck. The Service Manual says to use part MB-991113. This we do not have, so a quick search also suggested using a hammer. So with a little liquid wrench, how big of a hammer should I use without damaging the Stabilizer Bar.

If you are trying to get that out so you can replace it, use as big a hammer as you want. You may need to remove the whole sway bar though so you aren't fighting the bar bouncing when you hit it.
