Exhausts

Hey, something in my exhaust has been raddling or well its more of a 'broken pieces of crap raddling in my exhaust' type of sound. If i were to put it into neutral and i hit the gas it would sound fine as the rpms go up but whenever i let the rpms go down it makes a crunching/raddly sound. This also happens when im upshifting and downshifting pretty much whenever the rpms go down. My bro said i just need a new muffler. Anyways whats the problem and if its that ...then what kind do you recommend? an what have you guys put on your exhausts?

Does it make the same sound once the car/pipes are warm?

Also the CAT has an additional protective skin at the front to reduce heat emissions. With miles this shield loosens up and starts rattling. Any muffler shop can identify which section of the exhaust is faulty though fairly easily.

A large rubber mallet is very usefull when trying to locate vibrations in the exhaust.

Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you
still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.
