I have a strange nose right below my shifter it sounds like a lose bracket on my x-pipe but I checked them all and none of them are lose does anyone know what this could be?
It sounds just like a lose bracket rattling

Check all the bolts on your tranny crossmember. Should be 6 bolts. 2 in the middle and 2 on each side right above the cats I believe. That's where I'd start.

Could the sound be compared to chains rattling? How's your transmission shifting? I had a similar problem with my old car. It went on for about a year and then my transmission locked up and blew into pieces. Maybe you should change your transmission oil?

Would it rattle and shake when u would hit high speeds? Cuz mine doesn't make any noise but it shakes likes crazy when I go fast. Could it just be lose?

It may have a loose bolt, because some of those bolts are a pain the rear end to get to or may be a mount, which both could
Make a rattle sound

Re: Strange noise

I had a similar issue which started happening after I lowered mine. Turned out it was the speedometer cable rubbing on either the exhaust or something else can't remember exactly but I zip tied and it was fine, but mine was auto too so not sure.

Thanks for sharing that, it does kind of sound like that it's only from 1,000-2,000 RPM once I get to 4th and 5th it stops all together
