Default rear subframe rusted out

ok so i took the car into the shop today to see what was wrong with the front suspension and turns out my rear subframe (the one with the steering rack) is completely rusted out and the sway bar mount on the passenger side is just dangling in the air and there's a big hole where it used to sit, my question is since i might not be able to get a new subframe soon would it be okay to just take out the front sway bar for the time being? because the way it is right now it makes the car very unstable and pull to the right randomly. any suggestions...this is a very mild daily driven hf so would i be okay without a front sway bar for a while or not?

it will be totally fine if you take off the swaybar.

Just go to the wreckers and get a new one. I picked one up for 50$ and got the seal on it replaced, then I swapped it with my rusted out one.
