Question about rear sway bar

I have a 4th gen lude and the rear sway bar just broke on me. Most likely due to age. The car has about 145k.

Can you guys suggest a not wallet breaking rear sway bar please.
I don't do any track racing. It's a daily driver which I push around corners on highway ramps and street corners but nothing extra extreme. Even if it's a used one I can get somewhere.

Good looking out.

Re: Question about rear sway bar

There's an exit by my way that's a long curve. I usually hit it at a good speed. I tried it after my bar snapped and I felt the difference. The rear didn't feel as glued to the ground, it felt like the tires were going to slide out from underneath the car. Going to try to get one soon. I should probably get the front also huh? or is the rear the only one that really makes a difference?

only get the one that is broken, they are tough but break with time, or with bottoming out continuously, but yea just dont hit that curve fast haha, kinda feels like a boat to me when mine was broken
