lots of rattling
In my 95 burb 5.7, Im getting a really bad rattling at 1600-1800 rpm's sounds like it's coming from the exhaust. The exhaust on it is pretty well toast, both the muffler and the pipes themselves. Kinda looks like swiss cheese under there. The noise sounds like it is coming front the catalytic converter or right under the front passenger floor. Does this make any sense? I know I need an exhaust but is this going to be more expensive then I originally thought?? Should I replace the muffler bearing??
PS if one more thing breaks this week, I'm going to lose it. heres the list of stuff,
1. Sierra water pump
3. Cell phone
4. Exhuast noiseDan
1999 GMC Sierra 2500 350 vortec
1967 Jeep M725 ambulance 230 tornado
1990 Cherokee Limited- 3 inch lift on 33's
...and every one of em has issues

Have you looked at it? In a lot of cases, there are heat shields on the exhaust that try protect other things around it from getting too hot. These heat shields are usually spot or tack welded in place, and those welds break quite frequently. And then you get the rattling.'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB

I shall goeth and checketh
Edit: Heat shield looks like it could be the problem several tack welds were un-welded (rusted into non existence) So I ripped it off there. We'll see if that fixes the problem.
Edit: Heat shield wasn't the problem, new exhaust is going on today. I can't take the fumes any more.
