Noises?!

So I just recently had a UPR o/r x pipe put on and now I've got a noise I didn't have before. It's a high pitch rattling noise and it happens whenever I hit bumps or have any situation causing shaking. Gonna talk to the guys on Monday but just wanted some insight on it from you guys since I have to wait 2 days

It's probably a leak somewhere but usually a leak isn't high pitched. That's off. And exhaust leak is usually like a hissing sound or something close to that

Yea, it's a bolt on, not welded so I was thinking that could have something to do with it maybe?

Does it only do it when you are accelerating?

Mainly whenever I hit a bump or cause the car to shake it does it. Kind of sounds like a metal on metal chirp but I'm not sure

Depends on how many bumps I hit. If I hit a pot a hole it does it, then goes away right after. Never constant

The x could be hitting the drive shaft too. Just check it out

Put it on the lift, let it cool down and start spanking your exhaust, mine would rattle when decelerating and it ended up being one of the hangers at the tips
