      You need to upload it to a site like photobucket.com first and then post the link to that image here.

      The web links did not work for me, but the answer on your parts as noted above are sway bar end links. They come in kits, 1 per side of the truck. The kit will have 4 rubber or poly bushing (look like fat doughnuts), 8 metal washers, a steel or fiberglass tube, and 2 nuts with a long bolt threaded on both ends.

      Getting the old one off can be a bit of a pain since the are almost universally rusted tight. Easiest route is probably a pair of vice grips to hold it tight and a minute or so with a hack saw to cut the old bolt between the sleeve and control arm. Putting on a new one takes all of 3 minutes with 2 wrenches. Tires stay on the truck, usually easier when sitting on level ground without jacking up the front end. People change them out in parts store parking lots all the time.
