Sway Bar?

I'm pretty sure this is a sway bar link, but not 100% positive.

How would I go about fixing it?

This is on the front drivers side.

Dk Exp sway bar linkage

yes this is your sway bar linkage, to fix it just either get some vice grips to hold the top and a socket wrench on the bottom of th A-arm and loosen it to take it off or use a grinding wheel which is much faster and easier(the method i chose!).

You can buy aftermarket metal sway bar links to replace the original plastic ones. I bought mine at Napa.
