Hi, thanks for writing in. That is your steering stabilizer. This dampens any steering vibration, prevents your steering wheel from shaking while under normal driving conditions.

If damaged you may lose steering all together. It is best to get this fixed as soon as possible. You have to replace the stabilizer and bushings.
