What if a sway bar is broken, can you drive the car?

 

If you have a broken sway bar, it really isn't recommended that you drive the vehicle. If its a rear sway bar, you will feel a difference in the way the vehicle chages lanes, makes turns, etc. If it is a front sway, you will definitely feel a difference in the way the car handles, and it will get worse at higher speeds, possibly causing you to lose control.

It is the rear sway bar. Can I safely drive it 25 miles to the repair shop?

 

Yes, you can, but drive slowly, keep the speed down and you'll be fine.
