Cat raddles - options please

my right cat started raddling on my trip to High springs FL from raleigh. I'm assuming it coming apart internally and will need to be either
1. replaced ($ 2,300 from RN)
2. deleted - i don't see any negatives here replacement will be either a custom SS system from a local shop or something off the shelf.

any other options or thoughts? I don't have to worry about emissions any longer so deleting them is not an issue.

If you the y-pipe overall is still in good shape just have a local shop install universal cats.
I'm not sure stainless is worth it, as so far my y-pipes have lasted longer than the cats.

yea cheap maganflow universals are readily avail.

I get all my exhaust stuff from http://www.performancepeddler.com/ just give them a ring and let them know the diameter of the in and out.

Ive passed NJ and NY tough emissions inspections on a 96 f150 and numerous E30s with these things equipped

Yes they do.
I just got a Magnaflow stainless cat-back for my Disco. I was kind of disappointed to see the mating flange on the muffler wasn't also stainless since I didn't see mention of that on their website.

Could go nrp but I hear the fit is a nightmare and who knows how
Much stainless is in it or what kind.

the npr parts are $900 ish - for the y pipe and cats -

good to have that option but i think a custom system may be the way to go - will price it out. the raddle is not bad yet and i've some other items to take care of first but this is up there for my fixes to my DD.

I drove for a couple of years before messing with mine ... rattle went when it warmed up ... don't mess about getting cats cut out and replaced unless you are really sure the place is competent ... a friend tried this and has spent more than a new y-pipe and it leaks ...

One of mine was rattling on my RRC and I had a competent local guy weld in a new cat and a magnaflow muffler for $300. Problem solved. BTW, the aftermarket cat looks better than OEM. Smaller and an integrated heat shield.
