Default Broken sway rear sway bar at 183K...

So, I was driving along about three miles from my house and I heard the sound of something metallic dragging. Got home and noticed that the rear sway bar had completely broken on the right side. It was dragging. I did not hit anything. Has anyone seen this happen from just wear and tear? I have 183K on the car.

Anyone on the Charlotte, NC area have an extra sway bar for sale?

O...kay....

You're in luck, there are all kinds of people waiting to sell you a new one, or a new set... from Pfadt Racing to good ol' Gene Culley...

Either way, no biggie to replace and Gene's prices rock!
