    I just put in a used y-pipe, as mine was non-existant. I fire it up and drove around the block. As soon as I turn to th right, even a slight amount, I hear a grinding rotational noise. I didn't think it was the pipe at first so I repacked the front wheel bearings, hit all or the zerks with the grease gun, checked the brake pads for funny wear. Nothing, I am assuming it is the pipe, but why does it sound like a grind instead of a bang? The pipe is actually resting against the spring.

    thanks, Chris

    Where does the passenger side of your y-pipes run?
