Swaybar link replacement

Hey guys. I know it's been a while since I've been on here so please forgive me. Got a question. My wifes 01 Explorer seared off the top part of the swaybar link on the drivers side. Pretty simple fix from what I'm told. Question is, can I just replace the one or do I need to replace both sides?

Do both now, or one now, another next weekend. They're the same age. Don't forget to replace the bushings too

Going to purchase the kit so the bushings come with it. can get both for sides replaced for around $20. and a family member with a nice new garage and a helping hand means no labor cost. well maybe some beer

Well got them both replace the other night. Only took us about 2 Hours to get both side done. Only had to cut off the broken one. I will try and get a pic posted tomorrow.
