i had the same problem and what i found on mine, is the 2 piece downpipe was sliding in and out even though i had the clamp on as tight as it would go. grab the exhaust right in front of the crossmember and push up to see if it's sliding in and out. if it is, just get a few welds around it, and it'll hold.

just go to an exhaust shop and pay the guy $5-$20 to get under there and do 2 or 3 welds to hold it together. i had 3 other friends under there crankin that clamp down and it started to strip out the nut so i just had it welded

Anybody having problems with it rubbing against the spare tire or rear shocks?? I installled mine about 2 months ago, and now have a horrible squeak and cant tell if its from the spare or shock? Sitting still, they sit so close to one another that it could be either, and I cant tell which it is...

Easiest thing to look for is the rub marks on the other areas near clamps and hangers.

My Diamond Eye also rubs on the crossmember, against one of the bolts. I've adjusted it a few times but it keeps going right back. Do as above said, have someone throw a few welds on it as thats what I plan to do.
