Howdy all....Ok new issue...seems that when it rains it pours lately....
2000 Passfinder SE manual tranny...my stabilizer (sway) bar snapped in two. Yup...the whole thing just snapped in two. I am down here in Costa Rica and I am having a REAL hard time finding a new and(believe it or not), a USED one.
So before I order one from the States I would like to know:
1). If I have the two pieces welded back together, would this work or will the amount of torque break it again?
2). Can I have the rear reconfigured with 2 straight stabilizer bars (1 for each of the back wheels) like all the newer cars have?
3). Can I drive the car without an S-bar safely until I figure out what to do?
I will eventually need to figure out a solution because I will not be able to get my car passed through it's yearly inspection without it.
Thanks for any and all advice...
