Is that the swaybar link ?

Very easy and cheap to replace if so.

It almost looks like a hanger of some sort. Kinda like a muffler hanger.

Can you post se more pics? If its a sway bar link you should get that replaced and be careful on tight turns

That piece should be welded to the swaybar mount bracket.
