FORD 3000 Steering stabilizer bar

Hi Everyone,

Today while brushhogging a new area with my Ford 3000 I hit a big rut. The tires got turned and the force of the tractor moving forward broke the stabilizer bar that runs from the left wheel to the side of the tractor. I don't have a service manual and was wondering if someone could look up for me how to remove this bar. The end that connects to the wheel is a U joint and looks like you just remove the single bolt that attaches it. What I am really having problems with is how to get the other end that connects to the middle of the tractor off. The stabilizer bar connects to the tractor with a ball joint. I've taken the bracket off that holds it to the tractor but the steering cylinder is also connected to the stabilizer bar via a socket joint. The socket joint end connects to the stabilizer bar and it looks like it just bolts through the stabilizer bar. I took the nut off but the stabilizer bar refuses to slip off the bolt that is connected to a permanent socket joint of the steering cylinder. Is it just stubborn and I just need to wack it off or is it threaded on some how?

Thanks before hand for any help you give.

P.S. The part that broke and that I need help removing is the radius rod.
