Re: Noise from underneath V8

ME TOO!  THANKS.  I haven't taken it to the shop and I was wondering what it 
was.  Why is this so common?  My 90 V8 only has 58k on it.  Is it age?

Also, is this dangerous?

I have had the saem problem.
It was caused by a bad sub frame bolt, allowing the engine/transmission 
to rock, displacing the exhaust system correct location.
Check front motor mount, sub frame bolts, and exhasut system location
in tunnel.
