So I recently go into an accident (rearended) and we took it to the autobody shop and they said we needed to replace the reinforcement bar. But my Mercury mariner has a hitch, so therefore it doesn’t have a bar… It’s welded to the hitch. Because I have no idea what the piece on top that is welded to it is.
Would a Ford Escape trailer hitch fix this?
Or would it be better to just put the reinforcement bar that I bought that doesn’t have a trailer hitch on, and then just go get a trailer hitch and attach it below the reinforcement bar, to the frame of the car?
