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.

A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.
I dont see how it could be too long, if its the one the car came with. The sway bar would not be in the owners manual. Its in front and it goes from left front wheel to right front wheel. it will have a connector link at each end to connect to the lower arm. Sometimes it called the Anti-Sway bar or Stabilizer bar.
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
It could be a worn or broken sway bar link or sway bar bushing. Inspect all the suspension parts such as the steering linkage just to be safe, but pay attention to the sway bar system. Mainly the bushing and replace any that is damaged or worn with urethane bushings, they cost a bit more but last a life time of the car. Good luck and hope this helps.
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
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.
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.
