Default 242 rear sway bar removal question

So I'm replacing my rear springs on my 1979 242, everything is fine except the rear bolts on my sway bar. They are trapped by the trailing arm. I know I am missing something simple here, what is it? Drop the trailing arm?



I'm not sure why the bolt is S shaped, gotta replace that if I get the dam thing out.

It slides down out of those 'ear' brackets after you get the shock bolts out.

NB:

Generally one needs to jack the trailing arm or pumpkin up ~3/4" to take the binding pressure off of the shock bolt[s] so they slide out.

Haha, thanks! The swaybar is a lot more structural than I thought, dam thing is holding up the trailing arms by itself.
