Busted rear endlink - new swaybar?

I was changing my springs and busted the left rear endlink on the swaybar. I got the endlink screws off, but I can't get it off the bushing (disconnect it from the swaybar. Do I need to buy a whole new swaybar or does somebody know how to disconnect that endlink from the rear bar?
I read about the UUC, but I don't race, so I don't think that's necessary.

Pliers and a little muscle... Try spraying some wd-40 or silicone lubricant onto the bushing/bar where it slides off, grab it with some pliers and rotate it a bit to loosen it off the bar while pulling at the same time.

Shouldn't be difficult..
