Time to get new rear shocks LOL

well I have been debating on getting new shocks or not, but I was getting a little too crazy 4 wheeling the other day and did this.
My question is though is how long will Ill be able to drive around like this, its gonna take me a few days to get new shocks ordered and on and I drive to and from work all week. Also I can only afford new rear shocks at the moment, Ill be fine to put some Bilstien 5160's on with stock front correct?

You can drive without shocks forever if you want to. It's just gonna be a little jittery.

Remove the shock so that it doesn't damage the wheel and keep on driving until you get a replacement.

Almost looks like the shaft got hot enough that it melted the plastic as the plastic got bunched up, somehow.

Hmm. On my monitor it looked like the rod broke and was sticking out... but now that I look closer it does look like things melted or something.
