Ack! That's one of the control arms. It's what holds the axle in place front to back, and also stops it from twisting under torque. Until you get this fixed - use no more than 1/3 throttle, and be very, very careful on the brakes!

I can only tell you that the service manual shows the tire removed but doesn't actually say to remove it. If there is enough room to remove the bolt without removing the tire, you may be able to do it on the ground. If you need more room, a good set of ramps should be all you need. If you need to work with the tire off, you will need good jack stands and a jack to lift the axle into position. The torque for the two bolts is 74 ft.lbs. Good luck and work safe. One more thing, you may need a hammer and punch/drift to remove the bolts.
