Mach 1 shaker issues

As you can see in the picture one side is slanted, the shaker also rattles allot and will slightly move bounce at the front. Is there a solution to fix this?

Could be a few things...

One of your spherical mounts might be broken on the passenger side causing the sag. Remove the two 10mm bolts located on each side of the shaker. Gently lift up on the shaker to remove it from the spherical mounts. If one is missing you'll want to replace it.

If all 4 of them are fine, it could be that the shaker itself is just loose or the isolators were removed by a PO. Mine was rattling shortly after I got it and found out the isolators were shot and allowing the shaker to rattle, bounce excessively.
I replaced the worn out isolators with a new nylon spacer and a couple rubber grommets to quiet it down. Did it a in June of '14 and it has been fine so far.

Years ago there was a TSB issued for shaker rattle. The factory isolators that the front of the shaker rests on were junk and needed to be replaced. The link below has some good info.

Mine was clunk real bad when I hit bumps and the connection over at the air box would pop apart on each drive. I bought new shaker isolators and it fixed all that for me. There are nubs that are screwed into the shaker housing and these nubs sit down right in the isolator cups. The part number is 2L7Z-9P686-AA. I bought mine at the link below.

Hmmm, if your shaker mounting points look good, maybe your shaker bracket is missing bolts on that side..? You might want to get the shaker off again and have a look. I know my bracket has some rust around the shaker mount holes. I guess if it was bad enough, it could cause it to lean if the rust gave out. I need to repaint mine. I suck at painting lol.

Oh okay, glad it's not the shaker. So it's level now too? Hope you find its something simple to fix on your exhaust. Maybe a hanger grommet that's shot or something.
