Default 2001 Suspension Rust Issue

What's up guys, first post here. I'm looking at buying a 2001 Ram 1500 Sport with the 5.9. The front passenger side was sitting higher then the drivers side, after looking at the suspension there was something disconnected, I think it's the stabilizer link. Everything was pretty rusted and i think the bracket where the stabilizer link mounts to on the bottom rusted through and broke off. How hard of a fix would it be?

Actually it's the sway bar link, the green circle in the picture is where its broken off. So the question is whether this is repairable or not worth it.

The link is not a deal-breaker, only about $20 for both sides. It's a normal wear item.

It looks like the ball joint end of it is broken. Just replaced mine 14.99 each lifetime warranty at o'reilly. Easy fix.
