    I thought the same thing
    But this guy said that and he confused me
    So if the cats don't rattle or anything they are fine right?

    I will think that they could get clogged also and won't let the emissions pass or get filtered correctly...

    My car is a 00 camaro ss with 120xxx miles
    So I'm sure the warranty is over
    The previous owner said they were changed almost 2 years ago when it had 114xxx miles on it
    And he said after that he got 1 year warranty on the cats
    Is that the warranty after the cats are replaced?

    i'd take it to a dealer and let them know they were replaced a little while back (by the previous owner) and shit out on ya again... it would be worth the try...
