Re: front sway bar
Should be behind the front wheels and is mounted to the control arms and the body . Most have sway bar links on the control arms, but some are mounted with clamps.If it is broken or the bushings are worn it is easy to fix. Just make sure you tighten the bolts with the car's wieght on the ground or the bushings will squeak going over bumps.

By rear stabilizer, do you mean trailing arm or sway bar? If you have a busted trailing arm, I highly advise against driving. This is the bar that runs from the wheel hub transversely toward the front of the car and attaches to the frame. However, a busted rear sway bar, which runs transversely across the vehicle and runs along side the leaf spring, isn't as severe of an problem. You will just run into spongy turning issues.
If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck
Your old sway bar made of tubular steel. New sway bar made from solid steel. You have a frame under engine the sway bar attaches too. This frame also supports your engine and trans mounts. Follow frame and there are 4 bolts securing same. Mechanic I watched supported engine underneath. Loosen back bolts though not removed. (please note sway bar has arrow that bar can only go in one direction) This maybe your problem. Attach bar to frame and fitting's. Best if you raise front end and remove both tires. Good luck
my opinion would not to muck about with things like that and replace it with genuine parts that way you know it's ganna last price not sure but would not reconmend welding it don't play with your life when it could only cost like 300 to 400 to save your life
unbolt the sway bar links from the control arms and the two brackets holding it to the frame. make sure if you jack it up jack up the front end. if you jack up one side and not the other and take the sway bar loose it will be loaded and could cause injury if not careful as long as both front tires are off the ground the sway bar will not be loaded and will be safe to deal with
they do not use torsion bars on those cars.it is probably the sway bar you're talking about.if it's the front one they are pretty tough to change.you need to lower the front sub-frame to replace the sway bar.
The front stabilizer shaft (sometimes called a sway bar) is mounted to
the top rear of the frame and to the lower control arm. The shaft is
attached to the frame with clamps and rubber insulators and to the
control arms with insulator links.
