Default Rear sway bar bushing replacement, end link removal needed???

Hey guys,
Going to replace my rear sway bar bushings. Do I need to remove the end link? Or can I just remove the sway bar brackets and replace the bushing?
Thanks!

Thanks!
It will probably have some preload, so it will be much easier to undo one end of one or both end links so it “relaxes”. You might have trouble going back together if you don’t. I’d replace the brackets and bushings with ones with zerk fittings that can be greased while at it.
