SubySolutions or a hose clamp. Haven't had a suby without one (hose clamp that is).

I haven't had a suby that wasn't worked on by Fred  :2funny:

I just always ended up cutting mine off  :uglystupid2:

Same here.  I think they commonly rattly on all the N/A cars.  I got tired of trying to silence mine and ripped it off.

Also,  I'd second SubySolutions.

More lacrosse gear. Thanks to eBay, snagged protective gloves that fit like driving gloves for 60% off.  My old ones smell like a Superfund site.

A common Subaru problem.  I'm not sure what the pricing would be.  When I was a student, I just sort of crushed the heat Shields down on the pipes a bit.

If you're willing to drive a bit, Subie Solutions in Gansevoort is run by a member here. Fred's a good guy, a true Subie guru.

If you want something a little closer, Don's Garage in Cohoes has done some good work for me when I've been in a bind.

Hey all,

I'm new to Albany (just relocated for graduate school) and new to the Subaru family (2004 Subaru Forester 2.5XS, ~102k miles)! I am looking for a reputable mechanic in the area. My exhaust or heat shield (the Y-joint or whatev) is rattling in the low RPMs. Seems to be getting worse over the last few weeks. I'm a n00b when it comes to car repair, however,  I would like to learn as time goes on. First, I would like this looked at by a professional.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
Eric

Lol I've shot with my fair share of those too
If you're talking the warped sticks hanging on the walls, there will always be something to be said for the feel of a solid, 1 piece cue...Not to mention the effect it can have on your betting game  :coolsmiley:

See attached, the purple is going to darken up a bit more with sanding and applying finish. The grain in the olive should pop even more too

Sweet.  I'd probably suck with a pool queue that wasn't a bent cheapie, at this point in my life.  :mrgreen:
