Hey everyone, was driving around today and noticed a ticking noise when i got home. Doesnt sound great, would greatly appreciate any input as im going on a 3000mile road trip in the speed tomorrow. ugh.

It kind of sounds like a creaking exhaust bolt thats being shaken, not sure though, pretty worried about driving it that far though.

Yeah sounds like something is loose. I would jack your car up and start your car and get some thick gloves and inspect every bolt and hanger throughout the exhaust. The ticking sounds really close nearby the mufflers so I would start there first.

Cheers man, cars on the lift right now. I don't see anything immediate but still hear it ticking, kind of sounds internal as its louder out the back of the pipe versus under the car. Appreciate the input man, thinking you're right....now to find it.
