Was this during your MOT (annual roadworthiness test) equivalent?
Your first image above are known as transverse arms and could indeed be what the tester is talking about, there are 2 each side and are different in length (rear one is longer) so you need to find out which one you need. The ones in your image look identical.
Your second image are the anti-rollbar (ARB) drop-links and are a common failure, however I can't think why anyone would call these a sway bar. As mentioned the sway bar is more likely to be the ARB itself, although it would be nigh on impossible for an ARB to fail an MOT as the tester would be hard pushed to determine the state of the bushes by sight alone.
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
