Hi all,
I started to hear a disturbing rattle/scraping sound when going over bumps recently in my 2.2L '95 s10. Looking underneath the engine, I noticed a ~1" diameter cylindrical steel tube that connects one side of the chasis/suspension(?) to the other was no longer properly seated and was missing a connecting nut. Anyone able to determine from my pics the the name of this so that I can start diagnosing more specifically?
Thanks!

That's your sway bar. You're missing an end link. You can pick them up at the parts store for cheap. Just make sure it's for your truck.

actually that looks like the end link has been yanked thru the worn out hole.
Hole should be the same size as the shoulder on rubber.You may need to tack weld a washer onto the control arm for the rubber to seat in properly

may need a better picture then,hole looks pretty beat up to me,which will eat up the rubber,then wear into the bolt.
Might be a good time to change end links to the Ford ones that Harley suggested
