Post #28 by GT4six in this thread has a link to a web site with some excellent pictures, front and rear.
Most people don’t have to use a jack you just loosen the bolts and wiggle them out of the sway bar, do both sides at the same time.
Then lift one side and install the bolt (very easy) the other side will be a little harder to stab the bolt but is still VERY easy.
