I have a 2001 Ford Explorer XLT. My right front stabilizer end link is broke. Is it a hard and/or expensive fix to replace the link?

The stabilizer end link/ outer sway bar link is about $10 to $18 and is available from Ford or aftermarket companies like Moog make the link and bushing kit. It should take less than .5 to .7 hours to replace, quite easy to do. Check the link on the other side ensure it is not damaged.

thank you. I was going to replace both sides regardless, just wasn't sure if any special tools are required.

No special tools required, quite simple repair don't even need to take off the wheel.
