Usually you are replacing due to the top bolt snapping off from stress over time. The best thing to do is purchase a new sway bar link from Auto-zone for ~$25.00 and replace.

Not too hard, bottom bolt has hex key-way on end of bolt to hold so that you can remove nut. If not hacksaw off and replace accordingly. You do not have to take off tire if top bolt is broken, you should be able to get under vehicle and work freely. Not a hard job for home mechanic...you can save $200 easily by doing it in one afternoon. Good luck!
