It looks like these pieces go together. What am I looking at? [08' Eclipse GS]

Thank you, Jayallen! Is it safe to drive until that gets done?

If you really have to drive on it yeah sure, but don’t go too fast or corner too hard with it broken, and obviously get it fixed as soon as you can, it’ll be cheap to do, kudos to you for checking under your car and finding this though!
I’d personally just drive on it right to the mechanic shop

Yes, it's safe to drive on. The galant for example has the same suspension as we do, and no rear sway bar. To fix it will just reduce understeer issues, and bring back the sporty feel in corners

And like previously stated, it is in fact a sway bar end link, and they do break from time to time. I had one break on the racetrack last year, and it nearly sent me off the track.


The part is about $20, and replacing it is 2 nuts that go to a ball joint. Absolute shit to do without heat and an impact gun, so keep that in mind,
