    Do you want a "kit" exhaust? Try Summit racing, LMC, Jegs, or Ebay

    ok, you were asking about a good exhaust so I thought you wanted an exhaust system.
    If you just want to replace the muffler, then Magnaflow & Flowmaster seem to be the 2 most popular choices among the majority of the members here.

    Just get a dual in dual out muffler, if you go to midas they sell and install flowmaster so then they can also honor any warranty issues you may have down the road with the exhaust. Otherwise just go to an actual muffler shop and tell them what you want and they will bend it, weld it and install it, much cheaper then buying a full kit. By the way, I hted my magnaflow on my suburban I switched and went with a flo-pro much happier with the sound and the seat of the pants dyno was improved
