So a piece of my car just fell off

Not sure, I'm assuming this is suspension?

On the bright side, your passenger seat looks like it’s in great shape.

Are you SURE it is off your car and not something you ran over in the road from another vehicle?

I'd be shocked if your spring broke and you found the piece...

Sure looks like part of a spring. But you would've felt bad things afterwards if that was indeed yours.

lol yes, I'm the telephony guy at the university.

UPDATE: Turns out (-$256 later) that this was not from my car. When I ran over it it must have made contact with my exhaust to make me believe it was mine.

Still the best possible outcome at this point, if this were from one of your springs, you'd be waaay deeper into the hole

That happens to me on track quite often.
