When I had my first go around with Ford over my broken brackets, it was on a Saturday, and the person I spoke with claimed no knowledge of the problem but would have a Tech call me. The Tech called and stated that he had not heard of the issue but I could drive with out the stabilizer, I told him I could drive without brakes too but be damned if I would. A week later, a tech bulletin came out addressing the problem, mine have since be completely replaced by Ford and doing well.
