Um... what do i do?

Ok.. so something happened... i reversed over a curb at low speed.... it missed the exhaust... but it literally ripped the rear right sway bar bracket thingy off... like the bracket that the bar turns in when the ends go up and down... its been partially ripped off... so now the sway bar is squeaking like a mofo when ever it moves...
Ideas on fixes?
pics to come

What size is your swaybar? If it's a 19/21mm just get an energy suspensions sway bar mount kit. If you still have stock this might be a good time to upgrade and just get a kit + bar + endlinks from King6 or smth

I think that bracket will have to be welded on again.

Picture would be helpful.

Not having a rear swaybar (fully attached) can cause a bit more understeer. However, the car is still fully driveable so long as you don't go super fast into turns.
