Default Sway Bar End Links

I just swapped out my sway bar endlinks because one of them came loose and was making an awful noise on the front right side. So off I go to get some Moog endlinks. The right side came off with out a problem, but the left side......good lawwwddddddd it was a PIA to get off. The top bolt was a cake walk, but the lower one gave me hell. I had to basically put a open end wrench on the bolt, then take a breaker bar and place it over the top of the wrench, and under the lower arm. Once I did this, it would start to move and both the bolt and jam bolt would spin. So i grabbed some vice grips, and tried to loosen the bolt...ehhhhh no go, after fooling with it for about 15 minutes, I gave up and got out my dremel. I had to hack the hell out of the bolt to get it to come loose. I grabbed the vice grips again, locked on to the jam bolt, open end wrench on the cut up bolt.....spun right off.......So FUDGE a damn sway bar end link bolt

Dohhhh....On my test drive last night, I forgot to tighten my lug nuts before I left, I get around the corner and remember, I get out grab the stock one from the trunk and up rolls one-time. He gets out, asks if I need some help, I explain what happen and what I'm doing, and he says ok, I'll give you some extra light. Wowww thanks. Then after I am done, and start to walk back to my trunk he asks for license and insurance WTF?!?!?!?!?!?! Sure, here you go...He goes back to his car, run his checks, comes back and hands me my license and insurance. So I ask, what was this all about, he then explains that it was just a routine check....YEAH RIGHT I said. There was nothing routine about this, as I was stopped on the side of the road fixing a problem. No biggie, I took my license and insurance back and was on my way....Then OfficerFrasher gives me a citation...........GOOD LAWWWWDDDDDDDDD can the police let a brutha breath

Here is my documentation OfficerFrasher

Staggered, I am with you on the "short on patience," but I hate for something to stump me with something as simple as removing a freaking nut. A nut breaker is in my near future.
