Anyone changed their rear anti roll bar links on a X250? One of mine has popped a ball joint and I'm replacing both sides, any tricks or tips?

Last MOT was in February, I suspect a pothole or speedbump knocked the ball joint out of its socket... Doesn't appear to be too bad a job at first look, fingers crossed!

Job done, no major issues although the nuts holding the links on were an odd size at 15mm... Just jacked up the suspension arm a little to line up the lower link locating holes whilst the car body was on another jack.
Old arm and ball joint...
And the new one, did both sides...

Is that a perpetual 'next weekend'.. like many of my jobs on my 'to do' list Steve?... :D
Nope, it's my next job this weekend... although oddly I find myself sat on the sofa with a glass of wine watching Wheeler Dealers, the weeds are still there...
