hello... I recently got a 2.3" cat back exhaust (not actually sure what brand it is haha, but anyway) for on my EF Fairmont 6 cylinder, and it sounds great, but...

It makes a noise when i go over bumps in the road and some speed bumps....its not the exhaust hitting anything under the car or anything, because ive checked all that, its more like, a grinding sound...I thought perhaps it could be from the join of the new system to the original ford converter? I'm no exhaust expert so if anyone has any ideas I'd be glad to hear them,
thanks
