Front anti-roll (stabiliser) bar drop link sheared.

This happened to my 2001 K11 Micra today and I thought it an easy job to remove the link & bushes - wrong! I've soaked the link rod and lower securing nut with Plus Gas and I can just turn it in the the eye of the anti-roll bar. The top nut and bush disappeared with the sheared off bit of the link and there isn't much showing through to get a good grip on. I tried drifting it from the top but it just won't budge. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Apart from Nissan parts departments, are these links and bushes available as pattern spares from motor factors, and are they the same length for all the K11 range cars?
