The front anti roll bar is connected to the front wishbone or suspension arm via a drop link. This is a ball joint link that can wear out. The VW passat has similar issues with suspension wearing out and the only real way to be absolutely sure is to take the part off the car and see how free the movement of the ball joint is. If it is free and sloppy then it probably needs replacement , conversely if it is too stiff to even move then it has probably seized. Its common practice to replace the corresponding ball joint on the same side of the vehicle as one wearing puts load on the other items.
