I was about to say I've been working on cars for forever and have no idea what the heck you are talking about. But on that note have you checked your blinker fluid?

I know what the squeek is... The axle back and over axle pipe are not lined up enough, and the clamp isn't holding tight enough, so you hit a bump, and the two squeek as they move against one another. I have Pypes, and they have fitment issues. Just welded the two together with a bit of custom fabrication and problem solved. Mine was much, much worse though... You have a baby squeek, mine was an all out rattle... Drove me nuts.

I just got rid of the bracket all together. The clamp is suppose to make it as all one unit, so I figured making it one solid piece wouldn't hurt. I have no plans of getting new exhaust work or going F/I, for now, so the stock over axle pipe is more than sufficient.

Did that resolve your squeek issue, Clamphier?

Ooohhhh. I got you now... Makes sense. I thought that was my issue at first, but never found where the hanger would touch the mounting bracket, though. Those damn Pypes were the bane of my existence for a long time...

I currently have a set of 2011 single tip GT500's on my 2011 V6. I had to have the muffler shop cut off the back pipes from my stock V6 mufflers, then cut off the back pipes of the GT500's, then weld the back pipes from the V6 mufflers onto the GT500 mufflers. As stated, the GT's have a larger diameter exhaust tubing verses the V6; not sure if this changed in 2012 or later.

It cost me 80 bucks to have the welding done, but then the GT500's became V6 axleback mufflers. Here is a picture of what I'm refering to(lower pic shows my install of the GT500 lower valance):

OPs hood/front body kit. I found something similar I think on AM but it looks like around $3k.
