Question Hey guys I'm new here. I really need some help on my 99 Cobra.

I have a 99 svt Cobra that I wrecked by sliding off a road and into a tree with. A few months after getting it all back to new it starts to make a grinding noise from the rear when turning left or when I hit bumps. After a mechanic had it for a couple days he couldn't find anything wrong. So being a gear head I thought to find it myself. The problem I found is one of my rear sway bar brackets was snapped off and another part by rear axles is bent horribly. After taking it back to the mechanic he said he cant find any parts to fix it due to the dealership discontinuing the parts. So I been searching with no luck to find a rear sway bar bracket. Also, the other part that is bent I dont think I have the right name of what it is called. The mechanic told me it was a "Outer, inner tie rod sleeve" but cant find any part under that name. It does look like it connects to a tie rod. But its pretty much a bar across the rear end connecting the tires on the backside. Where it connects to the tire its threaded and then towards the middle its a female sleeve for the thread to twist into. If anyone could help me with a name of this part and help me find these parts including sway bar bracket I would forever be greatful.

The tie rods can be upgraded. I installed these heavy duty Maximimum Motorsports IRS tie rod and bump steer kit and I highly recomend them.

I would get ahold of maximum motorsports to see if they can help you.
