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.

SOURCE: 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.

Could deff. be the rear struts on this car but could also be that the alignment in the rear is way off causing the wheel that is supporting the most load when hitting a bump or pot hole to pull the car in the desired direction that that whell is angled toward. But if you are leaning towards replacing the rear struts do that first since it also requires a 4 wheel alignment then all the bases are covered. Otherwise if you try the alignment and that isn't it you will have to pay for a second alignment after the struts are replaced.
