Does anyone have experience repairing a frame where the sway bar was ripped out on the driver's side? Daughter's GT skidded off the road as a result of some ice and hit something that caused significant damage underneath starting with the radiator support and of course the sway bar mount.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Bill

Here’s a replacement sway bar bracket if you don’t want to straighten the old one


you need to hammer that sheet metal back flat. Then the two bolts slip in the wide hole and then fit in the slot. Raise the sway bar bracket up and secure with nuts. Yours are prob fine but here’s a pic for reference.


No welding unless the metal tore. Hard to see if it tore or just bent. Basically the rail acts as a t-slot. The studs slip in and then you sandwich the rail when you tighten it up
