I have no idea

So a week or so ago I posted a thread about rattleing in my pass rear tire. I checked to see If it might be the sway bar linkage but I didn't see anything wrong bc I assume you could
See that if it was. Now it not really rattles when at idol and then goes away when driving. I have no idea what it is.

It may be a broken exhaust hanger.

Yes. Easy was to check is to grab the pipe and try to shake both sides. I had a similar issue with a ball and socket joint in my pipes and bolt(s) had backed out and started rattling.

noises are tricky and have a tendancy to echoe. a simple check of grabbing the exhaust( passenger side first) and seeing if you can move it. then check all hangers. maybe putting the car on jackstands, in neautral and rotate the tire? idk man im just throwing bones.

I shook the right side exhaust and it did make the same exact noise that it makes when at idol. And the driver side didn't make any noise.

Agreed, probably best to go by an exhaust shop, doubt it would cost much at all.

So today I was looking at the exhaust and started moving it and it was twisting where the flow masters connect to the cats. One side is straight and the other is cocked side ways.

Save time and frustration and take it somewhere to get it buttoned up.
