rusted thru sway bar mounts

Had new starter put in and the tech looked over the car. He said I have rusted
thru sway bar mounts and it was unsafe. it didn't look that bad to me. Car is always garaged. Its a 328i 1997 BMW 164,000. It rides well but have noticed when going over potholes it seems floaty. He said thats the shocks as I need them. So do I need to fix the mounts or just drive the car slowly. Its not like I go flying around curves.Is this a common problems on BMWs and is it worth fixing? Going to a body shop tommorrow.

One side of mine rusted, and broke free, but I got both sides fixed to be safe. The piece that is connected to the chassis with 2 studs in it per side, that your swaybar bracket, and bushings mount to.

Is it an urgent issue. I really cannot afford to fix it. Also who should I bring it to a regular body shop or what? Someone will look at it today? I'm in Danbury Connecticut.
