This endlink, on the sway bar side, not the LCA side has only a bolt on one side and when trying to remove it it just spins inside the link. There is no bolt or anything to grab onto on the other side to stop the thing from spinning.

Anyone know how to unbolt this endlink?

(also, please do not suggest for me to buy new ones such as the mazdatrix endlinks...that is not an option for me)

Its broken if the stud spins freely. Use a screwdriver to pop the plastic part off, and use vise grips on the metal ball end thats left on the stud.

edit: Youre goign to have to replace that link no matter what you do, so do what you have to do to get the link off, including break it(see above). If you need stock S5 links, send me a PM. I have a bunch of extras.
