No. They're there for a reason
Check and make sure that everything is tight and if there is something still rattling, take it to a muffler shop and have them weld it...

Mines pretty noisy also.
I kinda like it like that.

Our cars are getting old... They're bound to start making some noise.

Hopefully that takes care of it.
When you're inspecting your exhaust system for rattles , look around for black, sooty signs of an exhaust leak.

Haha. I know it.
I went from a truck that you only need to jack up to change a tire, to a car that you need to jack up just to have a look underneath...

im pretty sure that's where the rattling is coming from...doesn't sound like a leak so its gotta be something loose or the heat shield bent or something... I will jack it up when I get a chance or park on a curb haha ****
