Flowmaster exhaust weird sound??

Ive had my 2 chamber flowmaster exhaust for a little over a year now and they had a nice deep mellow sound to them as most flowmasters do, but starting about 3 or 4 months ago the right side still has the good deep sound but the left sounds like crap it has like a vibrating sorta sound comming out of it sounds totally different then the right side? Is there something wrong with my car or the exhaust burnt out on that side or what? Im clue less on this one?

I always hear about so many problems with flowmasters around my area, I don't know the answer to your question but hope you get it figured out and if it is the flowmasters take them off get some better pipes.

Has it rotted out? I had them on my old 92 and they rotted out after a few years. Maybe a baffle has come loose?

I've always ran single chambers on my vehicles..I had em on my silverado and the first thing I did when I got my stang was put them on her..and I've never experienced a problem with flowmaster but I do believe they have a lifetime warranty so I'd look into that!

Nonsense.
SLP is nice, but it loses a large portion of the tone. Louder =/= better.
A catted or even catless H with chambered mufflers is a beautiful thing.
A 2v just doesn't move enough air to really pull off something like SLP and maintain a good tone.
SLPs sound great, just not really what I'd call wonderful.

Of course, that's my opinion and it comes from years of driving really loud cars. Sometimes it's a breath of fresh air to hear a muscle car, or even pony car, go by with a mellow exhaust note that only just hints at what's under the hood instead of roaring by at 4k rpm like they have something to prove.

That said, I cut the cats out of the stock H and run Stingers, so I don't exactly practice what I preach.

Flowmasters are known for being spot welded on the inside!.. So over time the welds start to come apart and you get a rattling or vibrating sound!... I went through two sets of Flows on my Monte-Carlo and they both did the same thing after a a few years!...

Flows do have a way if letting you know when compression is lost. Leaks cause a loss of tune too. I have super 44s
