Disconnect both front sway bar end links?

I heard a rattling on uneven ground, and upon inspection i noticed the driver's side front sway bar endlink was the culprit, knuckle popped out. So I checked the passenger side too, and it's ok, but things looked different. I checked it against a friend's Focus and found that the buddy who did the front strut assemblies in my focus put the wrong one on the driver's side. It's another passenger strut, it's new enough the part number is still clear. But I didn't have time and he offered to pick them up and install for me, live and learn. So I can't install a new endlink properly unless I get the right strut, and I've spent a chunk on it recently and am now fairly broke. So do I disconnect the passenger side endlink too, or drive with just one connected. Or put the old strut assembly back in and install the driver's side endlink on it? I replaced them because the passenger side coil spring broke.
