Pypes pype bombs rattle fix

So I bought a axel back from pype bombs and I actually love the sound I get out of this exhaust. My only problem was that when I would accelerate and raise my RPM's fast something would rattle from the back of the car. I tied everything down and still a nasty metal to metal rattle. So I found the culprit finally and here is my quick fix on how to do it. What's causing the rattle is that the hanger arm is hitting the hanger.. I have picks down low to show. My hanger arms actually had real rough indentations in this one specific spot so I knew I found the rattle. This was happening on both sides but harder on the passenger side..

QUICK FIX
Your going to need 3 things.
1. Rubber tubing (I got two for free from O'reilys auto parts)
2. Zip ties
3. Scissors

Cut the rubber tube in half slip it on the arm of the hanger and use the zip ties to hold it firmly. Your gonna wanna have a solid rubber area at your points of contact to minimize the rattle. Do this to both sides. I also uploaded some pics to help you spot these areas of rattle. Click image for larger version

Hope this helps all those frustrated owners with a rattle.. And maybe this isn't what is the cause of your rattle but hey never hurts to try. Oh and yes I over killed the tubbing with zip ties lol I did that to both and let me just say I went 100 on the back straight away hammer all the way down and not a single rattle

I hope it works out for you bud! I've been three weeks rattle free.. Just look at those hanger arms cause with heat those arms tend to move an inch not so in either direction and that's enough to make contact and rattle.. And if that's now it just get under your car and run your fingers around till you find the indentations cause a rattle will for sure be causing some type of damage at contact

I just took off my pype bombs and put in some borla stingers and haven't had any rattle or vibrations.. Do you have any clue where the sound begins? Is it metallic sounding? In the cabin? Check the license plate as well..

Its not the plates. I just bought the car new 3 weeks ago. I put an air aid cai the first week I had it. Ive check every thing on it and all is still good. It only does it after the exhuast warms up. Sounds almost like something lose in the muffler.

Is it when you are on the gas? Or does it do it while just idling on park?

It only does it when I'm on the gas. And as long as I stay under 3000 rpms it sounds great. The only thing I know to do is put the factory mufflers back on one at a time and try to isolate the problem.

Were they welded or clamped? Best advise get under the car and look for contact points

Sorry for hijacking your thread. I pulled it up on the lift where I work and its defiantly coming from the drivers side. I emailed Borla and looks like they are going to send me a new muffler.
