Roush rattle

Hey guys new person here! I checked a few other threads and didn't see my question answered so here goes..

I got my Roush axelbacks installed about 3 months ago and everything was fine and now for about a month I hear this metal on metal scraping sound.

I took it back to the dealership who installed it and they said everything looked good and had enough clearance and everything was tight.

Now the sound is back again and didn't really go away. Basically it only makes that scraping sound after I've driven for 30 mins or so and she's warmed up. Doesn't happen any other time and didn't happen with my stock exhaust.

Any ideas?

Get the dealer to test drive it at a time when it typically happens, so they can hear it too.
(Don't shut it off when you bring it there.)

Can't remember if I saw it here or on another forum. Mustanger bought a used 3.7 and was under car to do something else and found that axle backs and over axle were installed so that the over axle was rubbing on the axle. He showed a picture of the damage it had done to the axle. Made a pretty good notch in the axle.

Strange thing is that it only happens to me when it's warmed up and I've been driving it for abit and it doesn't always happen. Very odd

The only other thing that enters my mind is to try to get a look at things when it does happen. I know that might be pretty hard to do.
Or even look for spots(metal to metal) that appear very close to each other that may come in contact when heated up or possibly when on rough roads, etc.
In other words, potential spots.
If it happens like weekly, or so, have dealer look more closely for potential culprits.

We wouldn't want anything like what oxfordwhite said happen.

Yeah from all the other mustang forums I've checked out everyone seems to say get your hangars checked and make sure everything is really tight, pretty obvious but just strange it happens lol

I thought about going to a different dealer for a second opinion but that'll cost me..

I'm assuming you do NOT have to be moving.....if so jack it up if you have to (JACKSTANDS!) and listen with a piece of hose used as a stethoscope to try and find it. Sometimes you need to help your mechanic out.

Probably the hangers rubbing against the hanger bracket.
