Just wanted to say hello, as I am new to the Cobalt world. I just picked up an 06 SS/SC, blk on blk last week, and am LOVING IT. To be completely honest this is my first sporty car, I've owned nothing but Jeeps my entire life.
Any who, I've got a question and hoping you guys can help me out with it.
First off, it appears that the previous owner had either a axle back magnaflow exhaust installed or just the tip and resonator, installed (sorry not horribly mechanically inclined here so just going off a guess). It appears that whoever installed it either did not know what they were doing or decided they could do their own welding for the exhaust hanger.
Basically the last OEM hanger did not line up with the resonator, so they decided to weld their own hanger further back directly on the resonator... this is causing a horrible sounding squeak (metal rubbing on metal) whenever the car is idling. I took some pictures today but forgot my SD card reader so I will have to post those when I get home.
Has anyone here ever seen this done? what do you guys thing the best plan of action is to fix the issue? any ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Again I will post pics as soon as I get home.
EDIT: pics posted, Thanks!
