Pretty sure my axleback gasket is toast. It sounds like a tractor at the moment. On a good note we have gotten six inches of snow and it's still going.

Well I was wrong about my gasket. My whole axle back decided to detach itself in traffic. Thankfully one of my friends picked it up before it was hit. We have quite the crew. We have my rs my friends bug eye rs a yellow vw bug a Saturn vue and a mini van lol.

Instead of just getting an axle back the plan is to get a cat back so I don't have to worry about any more rust issues (on the exhaust atleast). I've been looking at eBay tsudo systems because I has no monies.

$289 with free shippings not too bad, and it's stainless. I had a 2.5 to 4.5in OBX muffler that came with my car. Sounded great on start up with the 2.2l and ripped but was a bit loud on the highway.
