Default What is this rattle from my exhaust from?

Hey all,

I have been experiencing a rattle coming from my exhaust when I hit the gas. It is especially loud in the lower rpms when im just taking off. I really dont know what to check for.

It seems to be coming from more in the front of the cab from what I can tell so I am wondering if it has to do with one of my Cats. Maybe something broke inside one of them? I do plan on doing true duals in the summer so maybe I will buy some magnaflow cats if this is the problem.

I had a flowmaster super 40 put on it back in early Febuary so maybe its loose or something? I know he welded one side and clamped the other. Just now sure how to go about chacking out where the problem is coming from and was hoping someone had this problem and can lead me to fix it. Thanks

Hmm I will take a look at that. I noticed a while ago that my heat shield was ripped off on one side I cant remember what one but that could be my problem

Could potentially be a loose hanger. I had that happen on my exhaust where the hanger broke off and I would get a noise when I drove over bumps.

Also what part of Jersey you from?

Get under there with a rubber mallet and tap on the exhaust. If something is loose you should be able to pinpoint it.
