Yesterday was a good day for the ST wash and wax and new weather tech floor mats she was looking good.

Today I hit a big chuck of semi tire tore off my rear bumper and messed up a few crossmembers underneath.

I bent the exhaust crossmember up which I know is not all that important and I can replace. However it bent up another crossmember in front of that that.
What is the name of this part and what does it do?

Damn, that's a PITA. It's hard to tell what's bent in the picture though. Has it affected the ride at all?

Oh crap, now I can see it. Yeah you probably need to get it to a shop, that looks mildly important.

It doesnt look like a part of the sub-frame right? It looks like part of the chassis/body - if that part isnt exposed to flexing/bending forces - I would not be too worried about it.

That sounds very nonchalant about driving around with something that looks structural completely broken, especially when ST drivers tend to push their cars. I assure you that part isn't there by accident.

Do yourself a favor and get it checked OP.
