HKS Carbon Ti exhaust rattleing

As the title states i'm having a clearance problem with my HKS carbon Ti Exhaust system. It's on my 05 WRX and seemed to be doing fine until I noticed a distinct rattling noise comming from the undercarriage about 2 weeks after installation. The exhaust is connected to the stock down pipe so the fitment isn't perfect. It seems as though it's tapping on both a heat shield and one of the links. I was also thinking it might be that the exhaust hangers are just really loose from all that pulling to get em in, which will cause it to move around real bad. I wanted to know if anyone could help me with any solutions to this minor problem. Thanx

You should look into some Kartboy hangers. Depending on where the rattle is coming from, this might help you out some.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

yeah, try the kartboy hangers first and see if that helps. but look under your car and figure where it's hitting for sure. cause kartboy also makes longer hangers too in case your exhuast need to be lowered.
