That's the stabilizer bar a/k/a sway bar. Its ends are attached to each front wheel so that as a wheel's spring compresses in a turn the bar lifts the opposite side's wheel to reduce the body's height and so its lean.

Thanks! A thorough cleaning of the engine compartment revealed some surface rust in the area below the battery tray, and it is on the mounts for that bar. So I was going to take the brackets off and clean and rust proof em. Regards, Rob
