Question about Cars & Trucks
A sway bar issue wouldn't make it suddenly pull anyway.
It sounds like what you're seeing is a failed ball joint. THAT will cause the problem you're having, AND it fits the description of what you're looking at.
Thanks for using Fixya.

SOURCE: Front Left Sway Bar Link
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.

Get a second opinion. Do not tell them what the other guy found. If they find the same things than go back to your regular mechanic, have him make the repairs, and thank him for catching those problems before they failed and potentially caused serious injury to yourself!
or if they find something else have them make those repairs.
or have you regular mechanic show you why he thinks those parts need to be replaced. The should be sloppy enough to see with the naked eye and he should be more than happen to show you the movement or problem with all of those parts. If he doesn't than find somebody who will.
