Hey guys I was changing my front brakes when I stumbled across this. I assume it is not good since the one part is not even connected, I am looking at the bolt like thing that is vertical

sway bar links, you can get replacements at most any autoparts store or the dealer. usually not a bad price either.

that was what I thought I had read a few posts and I thought thats what they were but just wanted to make sure. Do you know anything bout brakes? I can't get my rotors off? I tried hitting on the back but it did not work.

Your rotors probably corroded through and rusted onto something. This happened to me and Jason and I ended up just taking it to Ford and saying F it.

hit the rotor surface between the lugs with a hammer. go around and a round hitting it pretty hard. you wont mess them up.

this is the method i always use to get them off. i know it sounds silly because you are hitting them the wrong way but trust me it works. dont hit the surface the pads hit. only the surface between each lug.
