My question is what is that "bar", I cannot think of a better word for it, at the back of the landing gear on the MD
-80. I always wondered what it was, however recently I was asked what it was is by my computer teacher (who's into planes) and I decided I should ask around here seeing that a lot of you airplane technical whizzes hang out in the Tech/Ops forum.
I'll try link a picture but I've never tried that before so lets just hope it works.

I'm referring to that thing stuck to the nose gear.
I read something about a stone deflector on a nose gear shot, not sure if it was referring to that bar. Hopefully someone can tell me what it is for sure.
Thanks a lot for your help.
