Angry exhaust rubbing

WTF... i've had my exhaust on for over 2 yrs (supersprint)... all of a sudden it's rubbing like a mofo.... inside the car i can't hear sh*t but outside it's terrible

is there any easy solution (easier than re-positioning the exhaust) like maybe sticking some kind of heat resistant material in between the pipes and the body?

if anybody has had this problem before and come up with a quick sol'n please let me know....

Do you know where it is rubbing?. sometimes the exhaust acn shift due to a broken bolt or something. Take it to a exhaust shop. Most estimates are free

Check the exhaust hangers, the factory ones suck. Replace them and be happy again.

Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."

turns out my exhaust might have a hole in it... from anger to despair

i guess it happens... it must have been punctured by ice or something - i've had some serious bangs this winter

now i've got a decision to make - replace with another cat-back exhuast or put on my OEM exhaust which has been sitting in the garage for two yrs
