track bar question

I am rebuilding the front end of my 96 zj 5.2 and am going to change out the track bar with a new moog unit. How is the best way to get into the anchor end { drivers side } to remove it. it looks to be a bit of a chore. How is the best way to do this job ?

Rent or buy a pickle fork kit. Works for just about any joint on the ZJ. I got a set off eBay and use it all the time for tie rod ends/sway bar links/track bar.

Pickle fork is the easiest way I've found.
