Rear suspension part?

I’m replacing the rear suspension on my 65 GTO and I can’t figure out what this is called. I’d appreciate any info. Is it a trailing arm, a control arm brace/reinforcement? Thanks.

I would consider that an ADDITIONAL Control arm, But it's not factory.

That is a traction bar. Someone has been racing.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I’m just got to replace the bushings and leave it since it’s already there. When I finally have the money to do a full restoration I’ll have them eliminated.
