Default Is it safe to drive without a sway bar??

So my sway bar broke - common thing in 2007+ Altimas according to Nissan's forums but Nissan doesn't seem to give a fukk so no recall.

It's sunday night, everything is closed, tomorrow is Columbus day - everything is closed as well.
I'm all packed for 1,000 miles trip tomorrow morning and now this sway bar shit happens. I know u can drive around for sometime without out but is it safe to drive 1,000miles at 65-75mph without a sway bar

the sway bar is to keep yer car stable with no to minimal body roll in cornering. on the highway at faster speeds and passing a truck u might have to fight a little more to stay on the road. so just dont bend corners like a roller coaster and u should be good.

No, not only could it cause an accident but it'll screw up the rest of your suspension more if you drive on it like that. Causein more money spent in the long run

It'll be fine. I know plenty of people who do it on their Jeeps. Just don't drive like an idiot and you'll be fine.
