It's tough to describe noises over the net,,, Some of the other 'afflictions' that people describe may be something completely different than what they think,,,

My truck had 230 miles on it when I first test drove it. The rattle was there at that point. I don't know if a 'brand new' truck would make the noise, but who's to say,,,

I haven't had the time to take it back to the dealer yet,,, Curious thing is, I'm not sure what they could do to 'fix' it if the noise is actually the resonance of the frame caused by the exhaust 'shaking' back and forth.

I don't believe 'optional' OEM rubber bushings are available,,,

You can also either deaden the frame resonance, or hang the exhaust from another point,,, Neither one is probably "MOPAR" approved at this point.

Deadoning the resonance of the frame would be easy enough, but I hate placing anything 'foreign' in direct contact with the frame that might cause moisture/dirt to accumilate that may result in corrosion,,,

I'm tempted to take an old screen door spring and somehow 'restrict/limit/dampen' the side to side movement of the exhaust pipe,,,, but just how effective that would be is debateable.

Let us know how it goes, soward!

SWEET! A damper may just do the trick!!!!!

In my case, this will be sooooo much easier for all parties involved if we have the kind of info you just provided!

I am EAGERLY awaiting the results!!!!!!!

Could someone explain what the heck that thing is? The only "damper" I've heard of is an inertia damper on star trek I figure that's to take out the vibrations, but if you guys could explain how it works, that be good.



Thanks.

If it 'does what I think it does' its probably a 'canister' filled with metal 'shot'

Works on the same principle as a dead blow hammer,,,

THANK YOU for the info!!!!

Pretty slick fix, eh!!??!!

Is it a 'canister full of BB's', type of thing, or what do you think it is?

I've got the pics printed, and I'm gonna take them and TSB 11-002-0 with me to the dealer!!!

Its something like that its got some weight its about 5 pounds. the tsb was for exhaust vibration at idle in drive on the older body style DR trucks. i'm so glad it worked. houston make sure and tell them the clamp will not work so don't even bother ordering it. I will get the part number tomorrow for the clamp and I guess make sure they put it in the same place. the TSB calls for it to be put right behind the drivers side cat. converter. I figured with the rattle closer to the back I would play around and put it different places but right there is where it will stay if you need any other help my work number is 817-588-5215 thanks...

GOOD DEAL!!!

I'm pretty tickled that something like this even exists as a Dodge part!

I did some research on exhaust dampeners, and found out that GM has one for 03 Yukons,,,

"Varying success has been achieved using exhaust dampener part number 10199232. In some cases as many as seven dampeners are needed to improve the noise"

SEVEN!!???!!! HOLY COW!!!! Glad to hear that (1) of the Mopar dampeners seems to be working!!!

I've got it written down here in my 'note's to Dealer' paperwork about the clamp being too small,,,, Again, THANKS for all the work and the PICS!!!!!!!

No problem I am confused tho when the tech called they said they hadn't had any complaints on this issue tomorrow I will follow up with chrysler and let them know it worked and maybe they will at the least have a fix on file. our techs here are great guys that actually care I know there are alot of them out there that don't and it makes the rest of us look bad....
