Default 93 Rear sway bar removal for new bushings?

Hey guys just started looking at replacing the sway bar bushings on the ranger. I got all the parts ordered to do the job.

I went to PB blast all the fasteners last night and realized the rear drivers side sway bar link nut is behind the gas tank in between the tank and the frame.

Do I really need to drop the tank to get at that nut?

I would drop the tank if I was going to remove that. Not sure if you could li d do it with the bed removed.

When I removed my sway bar, I just left those links installed and pushed them up out of the way. Looked like way too much trouble to remove just for fun.

Okay looks like I'll drop the tank then. If i was just removing the sway bar I'd do like you and just leave it up there if i was getting rid of it.
