Is anything else bent or broken besides the sway bar mount? If its just the mount, get a new one and the bushing. But I would take it to a front end shop and have the alignment check after replacing it just to make sure nothing else is bad.

well its been like that for many months now, bent that is. i just noticed it within the last week tht it final broke.

also, that front crossmember is severly bent, im thinkin that has something to do with the addition wear on the swaybar bushing.

i wacked the shizz out of it one day in a rut, bent it like nothing. nothing was broke back then, nothin grubbed so i forgot about it. then today, i went offroad in some mud, and hear bang bang bang. then i saw what is in the pics.

might wanna put it on a frame straightener, then replace the sway bar and get it aligned. just for extra caution see if you can get someone to make you a more heavy duty xmember if you plan on going in more ruts.
