After I switched up my axle backs to Pypes, I started getting a rattle. Sounds like its in the very rear of my '12 mustang. I had to drop my sway bar bushings to get them in. I checked the tightness on them, made sure the cat back over axle piping wasn't touching anything, checked ball and socket fitting on axle backs... I'm at a loss. Only thing it could be is maybe that's caused by the sway bar bushings in the center being too tight? Anyone have any ideas?

I had that rattle and it was my Axlebacks actually my passenger side that would rattle around and vibrate so I got some extra hangers welded on and it fixes the issue

:good:^^

Also if the ball/socket connections are not even it can cause a rattle.

That's what it sounds like for mine too. Only the passenger side. Where did you put the extra hangers. Mine only has the three for the hangers already on there? Any way to get a picture for a better idea? That rattle drives me insane.

Aren't ball socket connections designed for fitment with it being a little off because of the c clamp?

Just go to a good muffler shop and they will have the hangers and can weld them in for you. Ill take a picture tomorrow during the day but basically they welded the hangers to end of my mufflers to the car itself. Now they don't budge and I made them weld them to my specifications so it's exactly where I wanted it.

Right, tightened evenly is what I meant.
You may have to put it on jack stands or on a lift with it running to pin point the source. Locally the shop I use will put it on the rack for free then quote a price to fix.. Issue like that usually don't cost much at all to correct. :good: if you did the install yourself there's no shame in having a shop button it up for you. :good: good luck ;)

Yup. I've gone through just about everything else. I think a muffler shop is about my last option. I'd still appreciate a picture to show the muffler mechanic. I live in Germany, and not being fluent in German yet, a picture truly is worth a thousand words.

Yea man my brother is set over there. They put him in a all expenses paid hotel with a great view and gym and rooftop pool. All tax free and tri-month bonuses. At 6 months he gets an additional bonus and same goes for 12 month. It's a great career man.

There's quite a few options to become an officer. Best bet is to talk to a recruiter. Every persons personal situation is different.

So, I just went down to the local car center where you can use lifts and tools for super cheap to work on your car. Turns out I never noticed that one of the rear hangars was touching the metal mount on the vehicle. I loosened the mid pipe and slid it back about 1/8 inch. Drove home and didn't hear the noise once. Hopefully that worked. I'd still like those pictures as I might just reinforce it anyway.
