Hi there. To be blunt, no, it's not safe to drive a vehicle that have any bushings that are completely broken. Bushings are designed to cushion critical steering or front end components. When they fail, those components can snap and cause serious damage to the vehicle, but more importantly, it will create a serious safety hazard for you and any occupants in the vehicle. I'd suggest that you have the stabilizer bar bushings replaced on your vehicle sooner rather than later to avoid serious mechanical component failure or risk of injury.
