Try putting a jack handle between the bottom of the link and the spring and prying it off the u-bolt plate mount. That's how I got mine off.

I used a torch, that worked really well to get rid of the wore out bushings...no, I didn't cut the bar in half. I just burnt the bushings, I was going to change them anyway.

This is what I just did yesterday.

1. Take the swaybar out, that means removing the two bushings underneath.
2. Pry the bottom swaybar arm out (Either side)so it slips off the bolt.
3. Take the whole thing (Swaybar + 2 arms) out of the jeep.
4. Put the nut back on the top portion (Connected to the swaybar)of the swaybar arm back on, couple of turns (Not all the way down).
5. Whack it hard with a sledge, on top of the nut, it will come out.

That is as far as I got yesterday.

Good Luck.

Just get rough with it...destroy it if you have to...In my opinion you don't need it. I run everyday with my swaybar disconnected. (I plan on taking it off one day) I do a lot of road driving to work and back, i haven't noticed much difference in handling. I run a mild suspension lift (around 2 1/2") and 33's on my CJ. It may be a totally different situation with a SOA and/or gobs of lift.
