i think i am missing some parts!

ok today i was re aiming my light and i also raised my fog lights up a lil the stock ones. so when i was under neath my truck i looked back and saw that the drivers side swaybar looking think is dis conected and the shaft is missing that conects it to the Arm. i was like WTF then i looked at the other side and the little rod was there that connects them but the screw that conects the swaybar is not connected to it so it just rotates up and down.

what could have happened??? douldit just all fall apart like that. i never noticed that before?

what is the part that connects the swaybar to the arm and what kind of screw do i need to re attach them again?? mavbe somone has some spare parts i just need to know name so i can locate the stuff.

any reasons this could have happened??

AutoZone has them, they also have some poly bushings and such in the same area. In the store near me, you walk in the doors and it's the first thing on the right after you get inside...

Their not hard at all to put in.

I had the same thing happen to me a few months back. The only reason I even noticed it was when I was rotating my tires. I think it is a dealer only part and I bought it from Ford for about $30 I think.

I guess thats more common than i thought, because it happened to me too. The only reason I saw it was because I dropped a pen under the truck and I went down to pick it up. And you can DEFINITELY tell the difference. Its amazing really.
