Default Sway bar broke!

Have my PT at dealer -
Since I hit a very bad pothole last year that ate a wheel, it hasn't handled right. Took it in for 4-wheel alignment, and asked for suspension bushings to be inspected and replaced as needed. Just got a call- the rear sway bar is broken! not bushings, broken. Will take a few days to get the bar in - made appointment for Friday.
Also doing 3 recalls - I've never had it back to dealer.
He mentioned brakes - I said that's next on my list - front pads okay, but original rotors too thin - 81,000 + miles. (pads are Raybestos ceramic - only replaced once). I'll do rear pads as well.

Dunno yet. Too cold to lie under myself. I would suspect so.

Went to NAPA and bought new rotors front & rear, and new pads front & rear - they had everything in stock except the pure ceramic pads for the front (actually, they told me over the phone that they had those, then when I showed up to get everything,... they tried to talk me into the next pad down - I ordered the ceramics). Since it's so cold, and I'm a wuss, I'm giving all the parts to dealer & have brakes done w/sway bar & alignment - gonna be an expensive visit, but since I've never had to take it for service in 81,000 miles (except for tires).... can't complain.
