    Exhaust Rattle!!!

    Whats up everyone, I have an 01 ws6 and i put on a borla cat back recently and i have rattle and i don't know if there is a simple solution to my problem.
    I was under the car yesterday and found it. It's over the axel and the tube is hitting the frame rail. I moved some pipes around and it didn't work. Is there any type of spacer i can buy or what materials would work to stop it, or have to take it to a shop and have something made.
    Thanks in advance
    Jeff

    Wonder if maybe header wrap would work for you.

    I had a issue like this when I installed the SLP loudmouth; the I-pipe was not (pushed) fitted all the way back into the Y-pipe. You may want to check the slip joint where the Y-pipe and the I-pipe slip together, it may need to be pushed back towards the engine; do you have a pic of the area making contact.
