Default GReddy Exhaust Problem

Ok, has anyone else had this problem and if so, how the hell did you fix it? After installing my EVOII exhaust system and driving it for nearly 1000 miles I noticed that I was getting a vibrating sound from the rear. I originally thought that it was the rear bumper cover rubbing, but it kept getting worse (and since I'm planning on getting my kit on soon I didn't check it right away). When I took a look at the pipes, I found the problem. The mandrel bend in the GReddy pipe directly forward of the canister is rattling against the rear crossmember. I hadn't heard it right away because it was rubbing on the sound-deadening tar, but has worn that away and is now hitting bare metal. I used some plumbing hose clamps to secure it, but they come off, and I'm finally pissed enough to do something about this. What are my options?

I would try loosening the whole exhaust, refitting it and then retighting it. It might just be an alighnment problem.

My evo2 is really close to the crossmember also, but hasn't hit at all. Try taking it off and realigning it, if that doesn't fix it then try some different hangers.
