I would recommend a good visual inspection to determine what is actually broke. Remove the rear wheels and start looking for anything obvious. It may be a simple fix.

The broken part can be seen through the trunk im not sure exactly what it was but it was a piece on the top of the shock i think.

Can you post a pic of it? I'm not sure I would drive a car very long with a broken suspension part.
