Broken Sway bar

I just want to know if anyone has the same problem as me :
I have broken sway bar in the rear driver's side and the dealer I went to told me that the part is in back-order and they don't know when they will get.
Anyone knows if it is dangerous or harmful to the car by keeping driving with a broken sway bar ? The service guy told me it is ok beause the sway bar just keep the car from leaning in a turn. But every time I make a right turn where there is a curb I heard a "scrubbing kind of noise" but no noise when there is no curb.

The other is weeping mirror. Does anyone have probem (wind noise) after fixing it ? I want to get it done but afraid of the probem afterward.

Since it is the rear link that has broken, it should not be a hazard at street speed. This will cause the MDX to push or understeer. Since you probably are not sliding around much through corners this should not be harmfull for a short time. I still would be carefull at speed. If the front link broke it would be a different story since that would likely create oversteer.
