I had a low-speed off late last season which bent my rear subframe and broke the exhaust mount which bolts to the subframe (see pics).

I would like to have it welded, but I am not sure what material this is. It is slightly magnetic, but this wasn't detectable with my "parts retriever" magnet - only a rare-earth one. If anyone recognizes the material or manufacturer, I would love to know. Otherwise, I'll need to do the "spark test," I guess. :evil3:

(I wire-brushed around the broken weld a bit. The heat-shield mount is just to show what a non-broken weld looks like.)

Take it to a weld shop, they can determine the material. Probably a type of stainless steel grade with a little steel in it that is why it's somewhat magnetic but will not rust like steel.
