"The shop manual confirms you need to split that ball joint in order to remove and replace the bar itself"

Actually, not quite true, as I replaced the front bar in my LS with an aftermarket version without separating the ball joints. Yes, not easy, but it can be done. I think the manual just figured that separating the joints would be the fastest method, with the proper tools.

I believe that the idea from him was that he wants to buy the new links from wherever asap, and install them soonest while being able to drive the car carefully for whatever essentials. Will be an easy job, doing both at the same time.
