Hello, so this week I went to go replace the sway bar bushings. To sum it up its been a disaster... 3 out of 4 of the bracket bolts broke and the 4th is rounded off. So I drilled out 2 of the holes in hopes to get a bolt and nut onto it, however realized that wouldn't work because there's no room to fit fingers into one of the holes farther down. So I thought I would the holes, just to see that it's hollow inside and the what Im guessing was welded metal for the threads, I drilled out.

So now I need advice for my options and have a couple questions. Should I replace the whole subframe? If so how involved would this be for me? Or if I left the sway bar with the bushings on it without the brackets on there with it connected to the end links would the sway bar still do some of its job or would it not do its job at all anymore?

If anyone has any tips or advice for what they'd do please let me know!

Below are pics of my situation lol....

Thank you for reading this!
