    Default heat shield

    Am I right in saying the heat shield can make a knocking sound when going over un even road or speed humps? how can I secure the front of the car if I put the rear end on axal stands?

    Chock the front wheels and put it in gear, but a loose exhaust heat shield makes more of a tiny rattle.

    Could be rad mounts. Try spraying some wd40 on the top mounts, I tried this, now quiet as a baby over speed bumps, pot holes, everything :-)
