strange noise

So yeah, I expect some rattles, but this sounds mechanical. I used to have a jeep with a vacuum leak so oil would blow back through the airbox and drip down the shocks and finally dissolved one of the shock bushings. thats what the rattle sounds like, or like... gah a trailer hitch on a ball thats too small?

its wierd, i crawled under and nothing seems loose or broken or out of sorts, and i only hear the noise at low speeds. it seems to come from the drivers side front wheel steering column area. im perplexed. it just doesnt sound good its a very hollow noise

anyone have any ideas, i know thats vague but i am not to sure what it could be, but it sounds like a loose joint. i thought maybe one of the springs was broken but they arent loose or anything, though i havent jacked it up to look yet. it doesnt affect handling or ride height or anything, i simply just dont know what it is and if its something i need to take in to ahve looked at. just doesnt sound normal.

exhaust hanger...

You know thomas, my hanger broke... the hanger which is welded onto my exhast system just before my cats, and that inserts into a little rubber bushing. If i still had the original part i could probably take it to a welder, but it's gone now. It doesn't make any noise, or seem to matter that it's missing, but i'd hate to catch the muffler on something and not have it supported.

anybody have any good ideas. i imagine there's a part number for the hanger, maybe if i get that, i can just have somebody weld on some extra metal to bolt the new part to...
