Scraped something underneath, now have 02 sensor codes

Yeah so i made a big mistake of trying to drive over the fill up lids at a gas station and had a nice scrape on of them. I woke up to P0141, AND P0136. Once it cools down im going to look under it a little better. Looked like i mightve hit the header, causeing the o2 sensor to smack the transmission. Wires looked okay from what i could see without jacking it up. I also had the code for IMRC stuck open as a pending code, cleared them and that stayed away, but then p0136 jumped in for the fun. What do you guys think

Okay so checked underneath, the rear 02 definitely smacked the axle i can see the mark. Heres another concerning thing i found, this hose is rubbing on the rubber boot going into the tranny and it was almost all the way through! So glad i checked around under there. I found another hose rubbing on the water pump up top and wrapped some heat tape around the metal junk that had a hole in it. Anywhere else i should be looking for this type of thing?

Clearing codes does not solve issue. Yes hitting header can cause an 02 failure. IMRC is a different issue. How many miles on car.

As you found you have to be cool w/ where & how you drive w/ that low hanging header that svt's have....Diagonal the driveways, curbs, ect.....Get in the habit of doing that. Possibly swap out your front struts w/ 70k that'd help.

Yeah its funny the other day i looked at it sitting outside at work in the distance and said "what is that hanging down like that"
Ive had the car since november and never really noticed how far down it actually sits.
And i also noticed when i have a passenger that side bottoms out over some bumps. 02 sensor, front struts, and a new windshield are at the top of my list.
