A lil exhuast problem

When i first got my car there was a rattle in the back i fixed it when i put my x pipe on. What happened was where the pipe goes over the rear end it had leaned against the unibody and when i take off at low rpms or go over bumps it rattles and its annoying. It fell over again yesterday can i just put it back and then put some sort of metal strap around it and screw it to the unibody? Or does someone have a better idea.

You just need to loosen the exhaust clamps and adjust it.

tighten the clamp more. I've never seen a pipe move once it was clamped down.

take a metal clamp like the CAI uses to connect to the throttle body and get something rubber that slides onto it and then clamp it around the exhaust the rubber will hit the unibody and keep the metal/metal contact from happening. OR you can get a shop to adjust it so it doesnt hit.
