Just disconnect/remove the damaged end link. This will make the bar non-functional with no real downsides. Keep the other end attached to keep the bar from moving around. Sounds like your easiest/ cheapest long term fix would be a Ford Racing SVT spring/shock kit. You'd get new springs, shocks, struts and larger rear sway bar for less than 300.00 which is a steal if you were to add up these components separately. You'll get a substantial handling improvement with minimal impacts to ride quality. Some decent end links at a good price are the Duralast units from Autozone. And yes, install a matched pair rather than an individual one.
