As you can see in the pic there is a nut on the threaded shaft you hold that with a wrench when removing the nut. To remove the old one and install the new one. Really easy.

You did say rear sway bar links so that would be in the rear. Also there is two one on the left and one on the right. If there both bad you would replace both. If only one is bad you can just replace the bad side. But there not real expensive so I would just replace both of them.

So on average how long would it take to replace the 2 of them? If a backyard mechanic does them.
