Exhaust problem

I have had my 5in exhaust on my truck for about a month now and it has ratteled since i put it on. I just got around to fixing it but i only found one place that it rubbed and i fixed that, but it still rattles/vibrates like a SOB. The exaust isnt touching anywhere so what should i do now. The exhaust is the economy straight piped 5in from performance truck products.

The only thing that i can see is that the exhaust is just shaking/vibrating and making noise but i havent got any idea how to solve this.

What do yall suggest?

Re: Exhaust problem

weld as many joints together, check your hanger locations. If your making noise something is either loose or hitting the frame.

Re: Exhaust problem

as stupid as it sounds, try holding the exhaust in different places when you first start it and see if it stops. i have seen exhausts be too "light" once the muffler and everything else has been removed and there isnt enough weight keep everything tight against the rubber hangers...just a thought!

Re: Exhaust problem

Thats what i have done in lay up under the truck and push up on it and it will stop. But how is the best way to fasten it?

Re: Exhaust problem

i would try a 3/4in heater hose wrapped around plumbers tape...or a layer of fiberglass weave strip or exhaust wrap under the plumbers tape self taping sheetmetal screwed to the frame with some type of rubber insulator at the frame mounting point

Re: Exhaust problem

Get back under there and pay close attention where the pipe after the downpipe goes thru the trans cross member. My pipe hit one of those crossmember bolts, that will rattle like hell, anoying. Let us know what you find.
