I was at my apt complex and went over a speed bump a little faster than normal, and after my front wheels passed the speed bump and the car bounced, I heard a horrible noise, and this is all I saw... It may not even be from my car but who knows. Any help would be great. Every thing still works e-brake, reg brakes.. no leaks.. I dont know....RON I KNOW YOU HAVE SOMTHING TO SAY... :)

maybe, but that noise sucked.. it sounded like somthing popping and shearing, and this is all I found at the scene of the crime.

No tennis ball nearby, couldn't be an antenna base.
I think its the blinker fluid cap.

Well whatever it is doesnt matter. I figured out what the horrid noise was... There is a skidplate that is connected to the subframe connector, and all it was was me scraping a high point in the asphault.. I accidentally did it again this morning. :) On a good note when I did my fuel filter nothing was broken, just some new scrapes.
