That ball behind your bumper is your vacuum reservoir.

Thanks for the response would that cause a rough idle if the line was severed

Re: Broken air? Line

I don't know what all it messes up, but it certainly has an impact.

I think if you search for terms such as "vacuum ball" and "bumper" you will find some folks who have tried to leave it out when swapping in an aftermarket bumper. Their experiences will probably tell you what goes wrong.
