Welcome to the club!
Contact Steeda, they will replace it for free!

Mine broke on a 270* turn from highway 5 to Florin Rd. here in Sac. I heard a loud "DONK" and drove a few block home and looked under the car to see it hanging.

Steeda stands by their parts. Contact them and they will send you a new one and put the old one back in the box and send it back shipping paid by them. Nice and easy. Pick up some new bushing lube at the same time and clean up the bushings. Took about a week to get out here on the Left coast.
