98 Windy-broken front swaybar question

My swaybar broke off at the clamp on the passenger side.I wan't to replace it but,can't see how to get to the bolts that hold the bushings.There is no room to get a wrench to them...What is the trick ??
Thanks

You have to lower the front of the subframe to get at them.

Take the front 2 bolts out and it should be able to be moved enough to get at the bolts.

Sorry it took some time to get back with you,I was out of town. My question is when you say the two front bolts,are you talking about the bolts directly below the swaybar clamps ??
Thanks again.
