No will take it to shop, do I need to do it prior to my return or can it wait until I get home

Jeep Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

I would have it repaired prior to your return if at all possible. This is the main front suspension component and it's going to cause a big issue with handling and with bumps. So it's really better to have a new bar put in before driving any long distances. If you've only got like 10 miles it's one thing, if it's 100 miles, don't risk it.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

It is about 500 miles, is it a safety issue or just involving handling?
Jeep Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 4 months ago

Wel, it could become a safety issue if the tire starts rubbing, but handling is also a safety issue at higher speeds. I imagine that side of the jeep is sitting pretty low. Bumps can drive the tire up into the fender.
