Unhappy A different kind of exhaust rattling question

Well, as the title states, my exhaust is rattling!!! Its been annoying me, and since I got home from school last night for the weekend, I got up today with the intention of tightning it down and curing the problem.....but its not a loose bolt or broken rubber hanger like I had thought.

Turns out my Magnaflow exhaust that has been on my car for alittle over 2 years is actually rattling internally (in the muffler itself). Bought the exhaust through Steeda at their stampede in Oct. '05, but installed it at Christmas '05.

Should I contact Magna or Steeda about this? All of the info (warranty and stuff) is up at my apartment at school. Do you guys think magnaflow will send me a new exhaust?

The welds on the muffler have cracked...

I would def. give them a call, at least to get it documented...I would have thought that a magnaflow exhaust would last longer than 2 years...

welp, called magna. They have a lifetime on all of their systems! only downside is I have to go through Steeda because thats where I got it. Other issue is Steeda is 30 mins from my parents house, 4 hours away from my apartment at school. The exhaust has been ordered by Steeda and should be here in a week, week and a half. now i have to not study for another weekend to come home and install it. Organic Chem is gonna own me!
