Default How bad is this?

I I'm sure this is already posted somewhere but I didn't know exactly what I'm looking for. But I have this disconnected piece that I just noticed and is now making a clunking noise. How bad is it to drive on this until I can fix it tonight? About 60 miles of driving today.

Thats your sway bar end link. You should be fine, just be easy in the corners and turns

Yep. Broken sway bar link. You can get new ones for about $20 and get it fixed in a few minutes.

You'll have more roll around the corners until you get it fixed, but if you're careful, you should be fine.
