Loud Bang in Exhaust

Recommended Posts

So the story goes...I had an aftermarket exhaust put on by an exhaust shop in town. Couldn't stand the drone, so they put back on a stock exhaust, but not the one that was on there originally (they had already unloaded it). This "new" stock exhaust looks a bit older, but seems to sound normal.


Problem...drove home from work today, and about 30 seconds after I shut off the truck, the exhaust made a loud pop noise, almost like popping out a dent. Anybody have any idea what the heck it is or how I can fix it? Should I even worry about it? The exhaust guy made it sound like the exhaust may not have been off of my exact truck, but had been fitted on somehow, I haven't really been underneath to look at it yet.


I can always go back to the exhaust shop, but it's like an hour away and I've been back there like 3 times fooling around with changes... I just want to be done with this.

My old truck ('01 2500HD 6.0L) used to make a loud bang/boing noise after I drove it for awhile. Sometimes the noise wouldn't happen for till a few minutes after I shut down, sometimes it was just 30 seconds or so...


I just figured it was the hot metal contracting on the muffler as it cooled down.


It was loud enough that I could sometimes hear it in the house, and I have a detached garage!
