91 Loyale Exhaust issue.
Posted 11 April 2006 - 03:23 PM
I am not car savy at all but I do have a good auto shop in my highschool that might be able to do the dirty work.
It seems when I take a sharp left turn I hear like a metal dragging sound. So I pulled over to look under my car. And noticed the drive shaft going to the rear wheels has a shiny spot on it. Its making contact with the exhaust piping after the second cat towards rear of car. What can I do to fix this issue. Its not affecting anything right now, but I fear if it keeps rubbing it might go through the already weak exhaust system or even worse hurt my drive shaft.
Any suggestions are cool, thanks.

My thoughts are its the exhaust pipe rattling and hitting against the drive shaft. There is an exhaust leak farther up the pipe that is causing more vibrations also so that would probably escalate the problem right?

Heres a picture of where I suspect its making contact.

Check the angle that the driveshaft meets the U joint at the diff. The diff should be about horizontal along it bottom. The driveshaft goes up at a slight angle.
