I have the same problem, and after searching here I found this thread and when I looked under my car, i found that my problem was one of those clamp\rings was broken off the exhaust. I only hear the noise when going over bumps and stuff. I want to fix it before something worse happens, like the exhaust comes off alltogether... so does anyone know what the clamps are actually called or a part number or anything... im not sure if they are universal or made for a specific car. and lastly if its somthing i could do myself or if it needs to be taken in for a welding?

it doesn't affect anything if its the heatshield clamps. Just go to your local muffler shop. They took mine off with a torch. Charged me 5.00, took all of 2 mins.
