I noticed a weird sound under my truck when I put it in gear. There would be a rattling noise. I checked underneath and I saw that my exhaust is rubbing against my tranny. That lead me to look at the tranny more and see that the tranny wasn't level to the oil pan. Anyone know what happened? It's still shifts super smooth and runs normal. Just wondering what's going on. Thanks!

Throw up some pictures. If something shifted with the trans should should be a le to tell by looking at the mount. Either be a gap or clean spot where it shifted from. Or does the engine look shifted to an angle?

It looks like you truck is missing the exhaust hanger bracket that mounds to the bell housing. Hard to tell from tue pic, but you can barely see the edge of the bracket on mine. You can also see my bolt still installed in the hole. The stock cat has a hanger than braces it to the engine/trans. It’s Likely your aftermarket exhaust was poorly supported and eventually worked its way to a bad vibration. That’s my guess.

Ok. Ya that makes sense. All the welds on my exhaust are really shitty. Thanks for giving me the info.
