Question turboxs exhaust rattle

I have the turboxs stealth back exhaust. I have had it for about four months and it is starting to rattle. I can't distinguish if it is in the cat or not. I do know that it moves around a bit with the stock ehaust hangers so I was thinking of replacing those. It seems to be getting louder(very noticable inside of the car). You can only hear it at idle or changing gears, no sounds just driving along unless I hit a few bumps. Anybody else having this problem, know what to do about it?

Thanks

Plumber's Pudding. Works like a charm.

Ok guys, I have the Perrin double-tip and as I have said in a previous thread I've had problems with rattling. I've ordered the kartboy hangers and got some plumber's pudding and I was going to have the dealership mess with it next month, BUT, my neighbor has those metallic ramps that you drive on and makes working under the car cake. Neighbor said I can borrow them so looks like I'll be taking care of that sometime next week.

Tut, when it comes to the pudding, did you just apply it along the undercarriege. Seems pretty selfexplanatory. I would guess that you applied it on the left side of car (left when you're looking at the exhaust), correct?

Yeah between the undercarriage and the exhaust where it hits off the car.

I put the car up on ramps today and did not have any luck with the rattle it was still there when I cranked it back up. I think that I narrowed it down to the catalytic converter mid pipe though. I think from the way it sounds that a piece of the cat had to have cracked off inside of the pipe. Anyone else experience this? If that's not it then I guess I will get the bypass pipe and change it out when ever I get the car inspected.

What does the tranny bracket do?
