The MN12's SLA front suspension consists of:

Spindle. Brake caliper, wheel bearing, brake rotor attached.
Upper control arm. Attaches to top of shock tower and top of spindle at the upper ball joint.
Lower control arm. Attaches to K-member and bottom of spindle at the lower ball joint.
Strut rod. Attaches to K-member and lower control arm.
Spring coil over shock assembly. Attaches to the top of the shock tower and lower control arm.
Tie rod ends. Inner tie rod attaches to the steering rack and outer tie rod end. Outer tie rod end attaches to the inner tie rod end and the spindle.
Sway bar. Attaches to the K-member.
Sway bar endlinks. Attaches to the end of the sway bar and the spindle.

What you have circled is most definitively the end of the sway bar. What's under it are the tie rod ends and the strut rod.

The mechanic is a moron.

Why on earth would you need a new sway bar anyway? :rolleyes:

If the tire moves forwards/backwards under braking it's most likely the strut rod bushings.

If you can't read my post telling you exactly what each item is, then I'm sorry... there is nobody here that can help you.

I wouldn't wipe my ass with that bar, for the singular reason that it's made by Dorman.
